I want a Stax Omega I. Just because.
DarkAngel: As per your suggestion, I nabbed a pair of Silver Reference IIs over Christmas time. Finally came back home to them...physical impression, extremely beautiful and HUGE, these things are just ridiculously overbuilt. A single Silver Reference II cable alone is thicker than the Mother powercord. Instant impressions courtesy of the extremely revealing nature of the Omega IIs: 1. So far there seems to be nothing the Appasionatas do that the Silver...

$2500 throws the door pretty wide open for your choice of sources. You could also consider the Arcam CD23T, Creek CD53, some of the Marantz SACD units and the Sony SCD-1.

It's thus in your best interest to get the best source you can possibly afford to get...
