What CD Transports Provide the Most Detail?


I recently purchased a used PS Audio PerfectWave transport that replaced an eight year old, Philips based, AudioSpace CD8 that I was using as a transport.

I was amazed about how much better my system sounded (Theta Pro Basic III DAC, CJ17LS2, McCormack DNA-500, and Thiel CS5's).

My assumption is that the PWT provided more detail that translated into a better presence and aliveness to the sound.

Can anyone share their experience after trading their PWT for some other transport?

Thanks for listening,

Hi George,

You have suggested the CXC before and it would seem it is worth a listen at $299.

Yes it's very good, the first wave form pic link in my post above is of it.

Cheers GeorgeĀ
