    The documentation says, "Using pitch control playback, CDs can be played back at a different pitch (sound frequency and playback speed)." If it didn't change the speed, it would be the Gadget!

    How big is the Alaskan audiophile population?

    The pitch control varies the playback speed, so it also changes the pitch. The variable pitch is ONLY available if you use the internal DAC, it has no effect on the digital outputs.

    Tascam began as a pro audio brand and elements of that remain. A pitch control on a CD player is often used by radio stations or audio production companies to slightly speed up a track and make it fit into an available time slot.

    On music I'm familiar with, I can hear it when they speed up a track to make it fit.
    That bugs the Schiit out of me, and I discard that station as not caring what the music sounds like.

    In my experience that would describe most commercial radio stations. :)

    Isn't listening to any American FM station, by definition, not caring about the music you hear? I believe they all artificilly compress the music.

    Agree. Kinda sad that advertising trumps music.
    My favorite station in Nashville never alters the music tempo.
    Independent station...http://lightning100.com/

    You say that like it's a bad thing. It's minus 17°C here in Ottawa.

    Seasonal equipment, some day I’ll tell people “Got my winter system up and running, a bit late this year but the house is much warmer now”.

    I was at a college radio station once. They used mp3s.

    I was at a radio station and they used 33's and 45's.

    God, I am getting old...

    It has been my experience that a high quality 25 watt class A will sound better than a high wattage class A amp; unless the high wattage cost several thousand dollars. It has to do to the transformer wattage ratio.
    I would love to see Jason make a 25 watt class A amp that would be his signature component; like the Yggy is to Mike.

    What class A amps do you like out of the ones you've listened to?
