You Fellas have been busy posting!
I have enjoyed reading your posts about CD quality. I think I will borrow some of your recomendations...
If I could take it back to the Rega Saturn if you don't mind?
The Saturn arrived today. What a great lookin player.
I will not get into a big review yet. but...DAMN it sounds great out of the box.
While not as great as some of the other CD's mentioned here..
I started with Lyle Lovett: "The Road to Ensenada". It sounds fantastic. The sound stage really opened up. I am not going to say I hear sounds I have never heard just yet but there were a couple of occasions where I believe this to be true. The Guitar picking is much more prominent. It is very obvious, I kid you not.
Next was Valerie Joyce and KD Lang to the same effect. The vocals are just unbelievable with a jet black background. I just don't want to get into too much until later when things are broken in (I want to put the excitement aside and compare to the Pioneer in some testing).
I have only had this set-up for a little over two weeks (Dyn's/NAD's) but it never sounded as good as tonight. The background is so inky black with the instruments coming forward and are so well defined and the bass is very lively.
The Dynaudios sound amazingly crystal clear. They are starting to sound more like the auditions I had before purchase.
Night one but it is clear that a better source will help.
Sorry to side track you Guys!
I won't say too much more about it for a couple of weeks. I really need to get all this gear broken in and do some side by side testing and then we can really chit-chat about it.
I am game for more CD thoughts though!
