Not sure if I had the transcendental module in mine or not but I had the cosecant V3 and I decided to try out the MHDT Paradisea + DAC which I bought direct for something like 600. Well to my surprise at 1/5th the price of the Cosecant I liked the Paradisea better it just sounded more open and natural to me. I spent a good deal of time comparing them since it seemed nuts that something so much less expensive could sound better but it did at least for me. I read an online review I think on positive feedback .com and they reviewed the big brother to the Paradisea, the Havana and compared directly to the Cosecant and liked the Havana better so I guess I wasn't crazy. I bought a Havana too and thought it was marginally better than the Paradisea. I sold the Havana and still have my original Paradisea. If I miss one thing about the Cosecant is the very cool styling and looks of it. It's like a piece of handcrafted artwork on your stereo rack. I paid full retail for my Cosecant and only lost a few bucks after owning it for over a year, I like that too, great resale. I would not hesitate to try other Wavelength products, they are a cool company.
