Huh? First, maybe we should establish what is the definition of "Jazz". When you think "Jazz", what/who comes to mind?  For me, I do not always think of the old classic musicians mentioned above.  Miles on occasion maybe.  
vibration control - cd player

DAC with i2S
I also recommend the Pontus.  Very happy with mine in my system.  Always used the I2S input from my cd transport.  Just purchased the Pontus 12th-1 so will be selling the original soon.  
A little gift for my fellow audiophiles
Be aware All.  The link provided to Audiophilemusic is to purchase a DOWNLOAD of the CD.  NOT the CD itself.  The OP did not make that clear.  I made the mistake and thought I was getting a CD sent to me.  Audiophilemusic will not refund.

Earth (isolated) ground vs. wall outlet ground.
Interesting topic.  I've been asking myself these same questions for years.  My old sixty three year small house has all two prong outlets from an old fuse panel.  The only ground is through the wall to the ground rod(I assume) buried to this pane... 
What new gear have you just bought?
"Swiss Digital Fusebox"  Hhmm?  Is it designed so it can be opened or is it sealed in epoxy? Waiting for my new CHoco Sound · EMEI Integrated Amp.  Had to give it a try.  
Does someone’s opinion affect your opinion?
You used the term "someone".  Is that someone a close friend or family?  Maybe that someone was purposely being an a** ,  because of jealousy and wanted to knock you down a bit? I love the sound of my system and I'm the only human that has listen...
