Re: Absolute best source?
Without question the Esoteric P-01/D-01/G-0s is by far at the top of the CD food chain. I've tried the Meitner, the full DCS stack, Levinson, Accuphase, Meridian, just about everything. The clock on the Esoteric is 20,000 times more accurate than any other player out there. Nothing else came close, so I bought it. HRS damping plates cover the entire rig (18 of them) and Kharma Enigma power cords throughout. Wow.
