Upon my arrival, I was walked into a nice, private listening room, the salesperson closed the doors behind him, I pulled out MY CD references and began listening. After about 20 minutes, the salesperson looked at me and knew if he didn't do something fast, I would be heading out the door.
He said, "Might you be interested in something used? I can tell by your response you're not happy with what you're hearing". I agreed. He left the room, and minutes later walked back in, with this little silver integrated tucked under his arm. "Just give me a minute and I'll have this all hooked up", he said.
A couple of minutes later I began hearing this incredible "wave of music". It was overwhelming, clean, natural, detailed, and sounded more like music than I thought was actually feasible from stereo equipment. It was a YBA Integre DT. Needless to say, the Creek stayed, the YBA found a new home. Last year I upgraded from the DT to the Passion Integre.
I saw your description of "better details, resolution, and transparency". You had just described the YBA to the "T".
I generally NEVER recommend stereo equipment on this site, or any other site. But, if these are the qualities you are truly looking for, you owe it to yourself to listen to a YBA DT. You can find a used unit for under $1500 if you ultimately decide to purchase one. In fact there are two available on this site for the $1200-1250 price range w/phono preamp.
Best of luck with your ultimate decision, Ed.
