Home Digital Drive

Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

tweak your CD player

(1) use 3 Chinese wooden chess (1.5" diameter, 0.5" height) to support the CD player, get wooden cone if you can afford to spend more
(2) put some heavy stuff (from books, paper weight, bowling ball, dumpbell whatever) on top of the CD player to dampen the vibration caused internally or externally
(3) use powerline filter on CD player AC sources

finetune the above tweaks and try to carefully hear any differences

if you can't hear the difference/improvement after you have done the above, congratualation, you don't need to buy an expensive transport/DAC

of course there are much more you can do if you open the case

the above tweaks will also apply on DAC

an expensive DAC will bring more obvious sonic improvements than an expensive transport
