Replaced CDP w/ Transport; Now, Soundstage Changes Dramatically w/each CD. Why?


Here's something I've never encountered. I've borrowed  a Heed DT Transport and am loving the increased resolution, compared to my Jolida JD100 cdp BUT, now the sound-stage expands and contracts, depending upon whichever CD is being played.The effect is very evident-- not subtle. This is really weird. 

System: Heed Transport -> Aqua La Voce II DAC -> Wells Majestic Integrated -> Silverline SR17.5 Monitors.
 
I don't even know where to begin. . . any suggestions? ? ? 

BTW, replacing the Blue Jeans BNC cable with an Empirical Audio BNC cable didn't change anything.

Another thing to consider for soundstage definition improvement is what sits under your components. Isoacoustic pucks are very reasonably priced & can greatly improve soundstage. Just food for thought... Also, I agree with uber that Nordost makes an awesome digital cable.

The bad news / Your Heed is not on it
