Most CD players have poor to almost nonexistent buffering, which leads to all sorts of problems including jitter distortion. You have to pay a ton of money to get extreme quality from a CD player. That same type of quality can be done with a PC + external DAC for much less cash."

i was using the d/a from the tg4 and then also the one in the sqeezebox. they both sound real good, just the cd player had a little more of a life to the way it sounds. crisper comes to mind. the d/a's although correct, had a slightly drier sound. kinda like the way the interconnect cables that i had been listening to, the ruby's have a more shizzle to it, while the other cables had various qualties in the way they sounded. the ruby's had a more transparent quality to them as well. i may have to try some of those mit's one day.

at the moment, i have audioquest ruby wire with these bad ass ends that i got from a freind not that far away.(thanks toymaker) next on my list, is the rabbit trick of removing the passive x-overs in the al3's and using two 300x2 sunfire amps with a set of 30 band rebranded rane eq's as well a 2/3way electronic x-over that say usd on them. mint old stock from a car audio setup that was used for a few months twelve plus years ago. if that works out well, i am going to look for some maggie 60" tweeter ribbons, then get some 60" carver ribbons for mids, and have an array of 6.5"-15" woofers(have not decided the woofer part). the mit cables would have to be a steal deal for me to get them as well. i am hoping to try some out this upcoming carverfest 2011.
