New Project RS2T transport

I have had one already and sent it back, did not work at all upon receipt. Dealing with the Music Room though is a pleasure. Will always do business with them. Had unit replaced with a new one, just arrived Yesterday, Sunday afternoon 7-25-22. Hooked it up and SAID WOW!!! I have a Meitner MA-1 DAC and the synergy is Fabulous. Right out of the box it sounded, GREAT. So very OPEN. I have been blessed when upgrading several pieces to be totally surprised by the improvements. VERY Audible!

I am somewhat concerned though as there have been a great deal of posts about quality control issues. (see first sentence)  As I said unit sounds GREAT, very impressed. HOWEVER, if anyone can comment that owns one, I noticed when placing the little magnetic puck on the disc that it just sits atop the center spindle and does not contact disc. The magnetic puck has a female center on the underside that goes over a very small  male metal protrusion. (SPINDLE)   I would think that it should go over that spindle totally and meet the disc firmly. (no space between disc and puck??? When I place puck on top of CD, It appears that the machining on the underside of the hole should be a MM wider so it doesn't sit atop the spindle and drops down totally on the disc. Hope this makes sense. Thanks Robert TN    Ps would like to thank Charles1 DAD  for encouraging me to stick with transport. It is that GOOD!!!   Just wondering if they all are designed to do what I am experiencing?


LP, Charles

Thanks for replying. Both of you have good points to consider.

The seller will accept the unit back for a refund if any issues are identified.

Bernardo. just adding my 2 cents. I am on my 3rd one, as the previous have been defective. The newest one is doing just fine, SO FAR!!!  about 7 months, maybe 8? I have added a Linear power supply from LT Audio and a good grade Anti cable Power cable.   I have a very nice system to compliment the unit. It is really divine to listen to Cd's, some still better than others, can't change that, recording process.

With my back ground on the units, all of which were purchased through the Music Room, they have been great with them. The 3rd Unit,upon my request was tested at their facility for any issues, it passed, an now I own it, with A 2 YEAR WARRANTY. Based upon my past experience (maybe just unlucky, as were several others) I would not buy one without a warranty.  Don't know anything about your sellers warranty?? I would just be very cautious.  Hope this helps. Robert TN They are not CHEAP $$$$$   If it was only 30 or 60 days, That would make me nervous. Good luck!!!

robshaw - I appreciate your input.

FWIW here is the rest of the story. I was reluctant to identify the seller as I was afraid someone else may have purchased it while I was researching the unit. This a used one I have now pulled the trigger on from The Music Room. Your experience with TMR makes me more comfortable with my decision. 

The unit comes with a 14 day trial during which I would expect to get any input from Fine Sounds. It should be broken in so I expect it to sound better than a brand new unbroken in unit. If I experience any issues I can send it back and it comes with a 45 day warranty. I suspect that the majority of the units which have had issues were discovered in the first month or two of purchase.

Right or wrong for me remains to be seen. Looking forward to hearing it versus my existing Ayre Acoustics DX-5 used as a transport which has died. Using A Vinnie Rossi L2i-SE Integrated Amplifier with 2.0 DAC.  


I believe that The Music Room is reputable and trustworthy. I’m interested in your listening impressions with your RS2T if you are so inclined to post them.


As Charles one has stated, I concur. Charles has helped me numerous times with his expertise as I have little. I trust and listen to his posts often for that reason. As a result I bought my third one, hesitantly.

      I just can't get over how it makes the CD's sing like no other. With a good DAC, which you own, you should be in heaven. People that haven't experienced the RS2T can't understand, its that good. Enjoy  Robert
