CDs And Green Markers. Please Don’t Laugh.

CD transports; do they really matter
charles1dad   I would love to try the RS2T but think I will have to settle for the DS2T. Is there much difference? It seems most people say digital is less affected than analog. Especially with low level signals That is why pre-amp is so sens... 
Any tweaks I'm missing?
If you’re more interested in upgrading components I would suggest Michael Percy audio things like FRED’s on page 9 power conditioner Cardas recepticles

CD transports; do they really matter

CD Player or Transport
Historically, it was said that a separate transport / DAC would generally give better sound than a standalone CDP. Separated components, two power supplies etc. Nowadays, it seems a DAC is used if you want streaming, not for redbook playback only... 
If there’s an audiophile exit ramp, this ain’t it…
femoore12 353 posts 09-27-2021 2:23am I ask my wife to always remind me why I got into this hobby when I start talking about new components. "You told me to remind you that it's music first and gear second."   So true, but It’...
