Is computer audio a bust?

In recent months, I have had several audio acquaintances return to CDPs claiming improved SQ versus their highly optimized computer transports (SS drives, external power supplies, etc, etc).

I wanted to poll people on their experiences with computer "transports." What variables have had the most impact on sonics? If you bailed on computers, why?

I personally have always believed that the transport, whether its a plastic disc spinner or computer, is as or more important than the dac itself and thus considerable thought and energy is required.

I should add that the PC or Mac/DAC combo introduces variables that can result in inferior SQ. The Lumin eliminates these variable by combining the computer and the DAC in one housing, with the power supply in another, thereby eliminating the USB or other interface and clocking problems. The designer has total control of the results.
That is funny steve, that measurement is really the same, However, the rest of your cable has nowhere near the technology and sound of the cable I am talking about, If you do not believe me, research all that you can about the Tara Labs Zero Gold with HFX grounding station and get back to me, likly, your tone will change with inverasment!
I will also add, If your cable was as profound as you believe, you would be profoundly Rich!, there would be no need to do digital audio again, you would be surely in the cable bussiness, you have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to a cable of the caliber of the Tara Labs Zero Gold with HFX grounding station, you have told me before, you never have heard of it or listened to it, in turn, I will take your post as a grain of salt!
There is more, The new two top level Tara labs interconnects, The Evolution Zero does 2 1/2 pico/farods per-foot, and the other Evolution Granmaster does 2 pico/farods a foot of capacitance, yes, I am going to the Evolution Zero, I am only mentioning this because of a comment on measurements, in the end, the measurements are interesting, However, the sound is the end game!
For everyone's reference, Lumin is at:

I did not find US prices on the site, but according to Mike Bovaird's review on, the Lumin digital streaming player price in the USA is $7200.
