I have found the SQ is better playing from a quality transport however.
hear better examples, IMHO.
I find the type used for recording the music amply suited for playback as well. :)
The problem again is that a consumer (or a reviewer) should be demonstrated to rather than forced to take a leap of faith. At CAS, once again, the best sounding systems in virtually every case came from Redbook CD replay from a Transport. Where the room had both a computer based option (apple etc) through a pricey DAC and the room also had a CD transport such as the Audio Note Transport 5 or CEC transport in the Volti room the Redbook frankly destroyed music originating from computers and indeed often through the same DAC.
I am always open to suggestions but I have heard quite expensive DACs from dCS, MSB, Bricasti, Linn, Meridian, Ayre, Chord, and several cheaper examples. I also own a well regarded Line Magnetic DAC
Surely I would assume one of these would offer some sound that could beat a NOS CD player playing the Redbook CD version of an album. The search goes on. Indeed, some of the rooms were hampered enough where I was like - I really think this is a good speaker - if only they had a source that wasn't so weak.
