I was under the impression that Meridian had already produced a dock that was able to extract the digital data as well, but it had cost a couple of grand, but it was more then a dock though.
Anyway anyone getting this please post impression.
Well, it may get raves from Stereophile, but I recall seeing some measurements in that same rag indicating that Wadia DACs didn't have flat frequency response. That is, or ought to be, unacceptable in a CD player. We've had arguments around here about whether CD players are audibly different. Wadia certainly produced a few that were. But that's not necessarily a recommendation.
BTW I'm no big fan of Stereophile, but some of their reviewers use Wadia CD players as they "reference", not that it matters much to me as well. Regarding measurements, I'm not surprised that they show deviation from the signal, how else people would buy into the notion that they all sound different?
