Op asks about CDTs and the usual suspects counter with something else...
All the best,
Sorry about your poor experience with the RS2T. Fortunately I’ve had excellent sonic performance you note without the reliability/customer service issues you suffered. It’s been brilliant for me. I assume that if you were seeking a music server you’d have inquired.
Based on reputation:track record I’d look into latest TEAC CD tray loading transport. I really like top loading CD transports and strongly encourage you to consider the Jay’s Audio offerings.
Glad to hear from you! When the Pro-Ject worked it was glorious. Glad you are enjoying yours. Reputation/reliability is definitely important.
BTW, your jazz recommendations, sometime back, have brought hours of great listening pleasure in the wharfy household.
Question-When you recommend the TEAC, what are you basing that on? Can you tell by looking at specs that the TEAC is going to be highly resolving, dead quiet with balanced placement of instruments in a believable 3 dimensional soundstage?
Jay's is on my radar, as is Audio Research CD6SE, even though that has a DAC.
