Which CD Player for me Stax?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

HEllo everybody, some time ago I met a man on diyaudio (now friend) who luckily lives nearby. One day he let me listen through his headphones from Stax and I was immediatly hooked...

I bought a SA 404 Signature and we built the Hybridamp from this site  http://www.high-amp.de/html/frame.html

They work very good together!

So, after trying a few cd players (Tascam401 MKII, Cambridge Audio CD6, Onkyo 7555...) I never have found the sound I want!

I want alotta details with melting realistic warm sound from acoustic instruments.

Further on some well placed sighted seats from which they play and a little space around them would be great...

My budget is 600€ and used is me choice... maybe symmetric analog XLR outs too...

 

Some suggestions?

Find an old PCM63/PMD100-based DAC, such as a Parasound or EAD and use it with your transport of choice. That, or a Metrum Octave.

Hi currawong, thankx for your suggestion! I found a used Parasound 1500 DAC in Berlin. Will have it next week...

Will also share my opinions!

Hi currawang and all, I had time to test the parasound 1500 DAC. To sum it up: It fullfills my requests! 

Although I have a problem with the 6V on the balanced XLR's... Rips it all up... sounds awfull metal hard...

I will put a resistor in there...

The cinch connection works good with my Hybrid-Stax-Amp...

Thanks again!
