Default Re: Absolute best source?

I'm a blog virgin, so be gentle with me.

I had the fortune to live with the Aurum Acoustics CDP for almost a year. It uses the Anagram Quantum DAC. I have never heard anything that comes that close to the real live event. The closest that I heard before was the top EAD processor, may they rest in peace...

My wife is a world-class mezzosoprano, and I record her direct to CD at her events, and most players leave these simple 2-mic recordings in shambles.

The CDP's secret, besides Derrick Moss' fanaticism for refinement, is that it is also a state-of-the-art preamp. No wires in the way, perfect control of all the dangers of mix'n'match audio.

Access to all the reviews on it, every one stellar, is at

Have fun!
