Over the years I have owned a few CD players and each new one has been (slightly) better than the previous one. It is not that I had shopped in a higher price class in real term money, but it seems more that technology is still evolving. Vinyl was and still is my “listing for hours and never getting tired, goosebump raising, etc. “ listening enjoyment. CD was also great, but more for convenience and it could not quite achieve the magic to capture my attention for hours. But, my CD sound has been catching up and recently it has joined the “league of extraordinary listening experience” side by side with my vinyl system, which I also had been upgrading over the years! You can see all in my profile. Did anyone have a similar experience? And what is your success CD set up?
