I have a innuos zenith mk3 streamer which easily rips any CD in 5 minutes or less. However the sound quality of my Jay's cdt2-mk3 CD transport is definitely superior to it, even so they are both connected to the same dac with high quality cables. Meaning no way I'm parting with the CD transport. Obviously we all have different experiences. Hence no answer given here is ever the answer to it all solution. One must figure it out for their specific system and listening room.
