I listen to my Orpheus almost every night, usually choosing one SACD, often classical.
Within five minutes you are in another world. There is nothing like this IMHO, not speakers (I have maggies), not Stax (I have 007a with Spritzer mod) ... it is like hypnosis. Euphonics is the correct term, as others have posted.
Violin concertos so searing they bring tears to my eyes. Opera so intense I shiver.
I listen with the lights off, the little l.e.d.'s on various pieces of equipment sparkle like stars in the sky.
This has been a very tense year. Without Orpheus I would be a drunk or druggie; it is my escape from reality.
When I bought the thing, my wife told me I could no longer buy a new car. Ever. She means it, and she controls the checkbook. My 2002 Toyota drops plastic pieces all over the road, is beat to hell, and very few of its systems work as intended. But I drive it with a smile.
