    BEST CD/DAC ? Accuphase, VITUS, Esoteric, T+A... ?

    Lol, I just don't believe it. How motivated do you think those sweat shop factory workers in Shin Zhang provence are going to be on 500 yuan a week? Thanks but i'll buy mine designed and built in-house in a SOTA factory in Denmark by hightly trained, motivated and paid workers :wink:.

    BEST CD/DAC ? Accuphase, VITUS, Esoteric, T+A... ?

    I run the SIA-025/SCD-025Mk2 combo in my system with Jorma Prime and Statement cables. They sound analogue-like, fluid and have good bass. In Class A mode as you would know, the SIA-025 sounds warm and tube-like once up to optimal temperature. HOV said these two components are "made for each...

    Campfire Audio Andromeda's + A&K AK300 portable rig

    Cheers Jalo. You've got a very nice DAP there btw! I could see myself stepping up to a higher end A&K player in future, perhaps when I add something like a future model replacement for the HiFi man Edition X. And I'll inevitably need more storage at some point. Though the AK300 has terrific...

    Audeze LCD-4

    Echoing earlier comments, but those cans look gorgeous. + 1 I hope they have improved reliablity to go with their looks & presumably better sound. I'd love to audition a pair of these with a good cable like Crystal & a Viva Egoista headphone amp. One day!

    Bmichels, The EAR players are based on a basic Arcam transport, so definitely the Vitus and Esoteric players will be better transports. And less distortion and read errors = less for the error correction to do. Tim De Paravacinni designs a good tube circuit & produces musical sounding gear, but...

    It is better, yes. I actually once asked Hans how close the SCD-025 got to the MP-T201 & MP-D201 & was told "80% max", however I have a friend who recently upgraded from a Vitus RCD-100 cd player to the latest spec MP-D201 dac & he told me "..as i said before the improvement to sound with the MP...

    BEST CD/DAC ? Accuphase, VITUS, Esoteric, T+A... ?

    You're welcome bmichels :) Ok, the Luxman D-08u is a good value and generally well built sacd player even at its price point of $18k, though fyi Luxman was sold to a Chinese company & to the best of my knowledge manufacturing has been moved back to China. If that's the case, that would be a red...

    Bmichels, I was unable to respond to your question about the SCD-025Mk2 on Audioshark and AA because I was banned by the owner of Audioshark after being trolled on that forum & voluntarily leaving AA after being treated shabbily by a moderator. I couldn't believe the uninformed tripe you were...
