Need help for a CD transport.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all. A little while back I sat up a headphone rig in my bedroom and I use it quite often. I have a Burson Conductor with HD600's. I need the small size of the Burson due to space limitations where the rig is located. I've been using various CD players for a source along with my computer (I have a lot of CD's). The sound is fantastic but the CD players are all standard component size. I need something smaller! Been looking for a stand alone transport and all I see out there is the current Musical Fidelity model at 1K. Don't really want to spend that much on a transport. If it possible to use a computer DVD/CD drive? I see hundreds of those out there but I have no idea how it would work for my situation. They also are cheap. Worth looking into?

I really don't think this is a good idea. I think you would be better off ripping all your CDs to media files.

Or, how about something like this?

Hi Billybob, thanks for the response. At 215mm the width of the Teac would be just about the right size for what I need. When I do use my computer via USB into my Burson I pretty much run into the same problem, size. 99 out of a 100 times I'm using the Burson it's a CD. Having to rearrange and find somewhere to put the computer is a PITA. I have an external hard drive with just under 700 G of music on it. I have a pair of B&W P7's and a Parasound ZDAC I use with my computer. If there is something in my hard drive I want to listen to on the bedroom rig I generally just burn a copy on blank CD. Kind of a gear geek so I have a few unused CD players laying around. I've found with a couple of really cheap CD players the Burson is not able to pick up the signal via coax. Too much jitter from the cheap cd transports? Who knows. Right now I'm using a good Yamaha universal player with the Burson and it works well. It's also huge!

This one's also an affordable, tiny, slot-loading unit: http://www.amazon.com/Pro-Ject-Audio-CD-Box-Silver/dp/B00E99LMB4/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_20
