The first CD transport from Little Dot will be releasing soon - Page 12

post #166 of 176
This thread has gotten very dead. The CDP_1 still seems like the best choice for a digital transport with a small size. The Cambridge Sonata CD30 seemed promising but the only person on the forum who tried one stated it clips the first second or so of every track it plays. The shanling is overpriced for what I need. I just need a small jitter-free digital transport and nothing else.

For the price, I am happy with my CDP_1. Sound quality is indistinguishable (to me) from my SB3, both going into a CI Audio VDA2 DAC. The only frustration with the CDP_1 is it's slow response to button pressing, which is frankly rather hard to fathom in this day & age.

Would it be possible for you to show or describe the remote control? I'd greatly appreciate it. There isn't a single picture of it anywhere on the internet.

It's just one of those generic credit card type remotes, most definitely nothing fancy. I can take a picture tomorrow.

If it's not too much trouble I would really appreciate it. I'm still debating whether the sluggish response is a problem or not so the little details could make or break it for me. In terms of physical width there's nothing smaller out there aside from the upcoming TEAC models, so I can probably live with the slow response if everything else looks right.

Here you go...

Very much appreciated. One final question and I'll quit troubling you: is the IR reception decent? i.e. do you have to point the remote right at the unit, or is it fairly forgiving?

With fresh batteries, my remote can reach 15ft with direct line of sight. It's not great off-axis though, you do need to point it in the direction of the player.

After some research I purchased a Pacific Valve CDM-12. It was, in some respect a leap-of-faith, but I haven't been disappointed. Does anyone else own one?

There seems to be some interest in remotes, so here's mine. The case is Machined aluminum and weights 5.3 oz.

Thanks for all your feedback. My gut says to go with the CDP_1 so I hope the sluggish button response isn't too bad. The comments about the Sonata are too much of a cause for concern, and the new TEAC model isn't coming out until March. Little Dot seems to have a lot of happy customers on the boards so I'm sure I'll be satisfied.

Yes the button response thing isn't a big deal in my opinion, just a bit odd. Considering the price, I think it's an excellent bit of kit.
