i'ld like to know your experience: please indicate two CDT: your prefer and wich one you have comparated with (also integrated cd player but only use as transport)

let's go:



Good points. In the case of Pro-ject, an interesting experiment would be compare the DS2T withe external p-s to the stock Rs2T.


I believe that the main distinguishing attribute contributing to the high level of sound quality by the RS2T is the utilization of the Stream Unlimited CD PRO-8 top loading drive unit with its integrated Blue Tiger servo. I strongly suspect this is the major factor.


Charles; you hit it on the head.  The Stream unlimited drives and servo boards are about the best that can be had (except in the case of very expensive transports), and if the output electronics are well done, the sound is quite good.  This is why Schiit uses them in the URD transport.


Wise choice for Schitt.

Gryphon, Audionet, Aqua HiFii (La Diva MK II) and Acustic Arts Audio have all chosen the latest Stream Unlimited CD PRO CD-8 top loading drive mechanism/assembly unit.


For the people who recommended the PS Audio SACD Transport - any concerns about the reliability of the transport mechanism? I read in another thread that it uses a Denon & Marantz drive which is supposed to be more reliable than the cheap drive used in the older PS Audio transport.


I’m looking to replace my 20 year old Accustic Arts CDP which does have a top loading drive. I’m considering the PS Audio transport and their new DirectStream MKII. It would be an easier choice if PS Audio used a top loading drive.
