    Nice selection there. I've a couple of Minnie Ripperton CDs. but don't have that one. I've a few Roy Ayers CDs, but don't have that one.

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    I should have made myself clear, once I have an audiophile edition of a title I don't go chasing after others. Bitches Brew is the lone exception, and that happened for other reasons, not because I was chasing better. And, just as you, I've hundreds of favorite albums across many genres, so...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Nice collection there, I don't have any of them but know the artists. I bought the one album I have and never bought anything else after. Apparently, it wasn't my thing back then. Haven't heard anything by him since. I'll only chase after the audiophile edition of CDs if it's a favorite album...

    Aune S17 pro

    Well at least you knew about it and was prepared. As for active cooling, it's honestly why I skipped the Burson amps. I came very close to getting the Soloist Voyager, was certainly within my price point, and was even a click away from purchasing it, but in the end, I couldn't get past the...

    Aune S17 pro

    You know, based on what I am hearing about heating problems, and needing heatsinks and all that to keep the unit cooled, I'm glad I didn't get one of these. If I have to resort to all types of tricks and add-ons just to keep a unit cool so I can play it, I don't need it. I think Aune should...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Nice to know I'm not the only one who can appreciate those "audiophile" CDs :thumbsup: I have a Makoto Ozone on vinyl - Now You Know, but not that one, and none on CD. Haven't heard it for so long I don't even know what it sounds like.

    Niimbus Ultimate Series US4/US4+/US5/US5 Pro Headphone Amps - by Lake People

    And if they gave you even half of that, you'd then give another 20 list of things, with number 1) being the amp costs too much, 2 being too many buttons on the front, 3 being too complicated to operate.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I think if people stopped listening to other's tell them what their gear should sound like, a lot more people would be happy with what they have. When I choose to buy any gear, it's never because someone told me what I needed, it's because I researched and found out on my own what was...

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    It's not balanced. If it were, it would have XLR outputs. Not a big deal, just a curiosity. My Rotel doesn't have XLR outs. And if I get the Teac VRDS-701T (CD Transport), number 1 on my list, it doesn't have XLR outs either. Yeah, I looked at that Shanling ET3 as it was getting a lot of...

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    Thank you. Yeah, I'm playing with both the Supra LoRad silver and copper-based power cords in my system. I have 3 cords in the system - 2 copper-based cords, one silver cord. I've found if I place the both the copper-based cords on the DAC and headphone amp, silver cords on the CD player, I...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Can't believe I'm seeing this obscure album posted here. I have that CD and my favs on it are Inhaler, and the Issac Hayes sampled Walk On by (YouTube) in Wicky. Also, like Plus Profond.

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    So, you say. And I don't see a slight either, I simply disagree. Sorry, that hurts your sense of being :rolling_eyes: Movin on :dark_sunglasses:

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    Quality cables help... ⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣ And yes... DDC = Digital to Digital Converter. And for clarity, I never said my FLAC files sounded bad, in fact, they sound even better with the DDC added, it's just I get a different sound when playing the CDs themselves. They're kind of slightly less...

    Post A Photograph Of Your Turntable

    This was taken some 20+ years ago. It was actually the very first photo I ever sold (I'm an armature photographer). One of my co-workers saw it and wanted two, one for her, and one for her mother. Little did she know she would inspire me to sell many more of my photos. Any this is called Music...

    Post Your Video Game Screenshots!

    Nice pics played both those games. Also, a huge fan of both, and especially the Dragon Age series. Played all the game. Waiting for Dragen Age 4 to release. As Well as Mass Effect 4, my favorite game series of all time. Currently not playing anything as I'm thinking about doing a new system...

    Love the simplicity of that setup. I'm sure it sounds awesome (LOL - my wife hates me saying that word :relaxed:). Great looking system :thumbsup:

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    Luck for me, I'm not concerned with your opinion on how I run my system. I won't tell you how to spend your money, cause you're not telling me how to spend mine. Again, you do you. I'll do me. Movin on :sunglasses:

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    You got it... partially as there are no "WAV" files. I should know considering I ripped the CDs myself as told in the link I posted :wink: Cheers! :sunglasses:

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    Certainly "your" opinion. Mine says otherwise and why "I" need a CD player/transport. But that's "me" :sunglasses:

    Confused by the cost of CD Transports

    My experience is quite the opposite. And trust me, my FLAC rips are high quality rips - my thread. As for CD playing, source material matters - If the CD is of bad sound quality, so will the sound coming out the audio gear. As a music collector, I own a lot of quality sounding CDs (aka...
