PC or CDT ?
First post here so maybe best if I let people know what I use...as I have a right royal dilema!
Front End - Being Decided
Musical Fidelity Tri Vista - Separate Power supply
B & W 803 speakers
Good interconnects and Speaker Cables.
The thing is I did have the MF Nu-Vista CD player which was brilliant but, I sold it and am now looking at a DAC + CDT
I`ve really decided on the Eximus DP1 but, I get confused about whether, from a sonic POV a CDT is going to prove better than a PC option such as a mac mini.
I`ve probably got this wrong but surely ripping a cd to Itunes via a pretty basic PC based cd drive and replaying it via PC to the DAC cannot offer an improvement over a direct good quality CDT to DAC process...can it?
I`m not that bothererd about easy acess for my own listening pleasure and can grasp the concept that a direct WAV download from Itunes may have some sonic advantages...but I really enjoy `reallity` in music, positioning, depth, space, timbre and all that stuff they used to speak of years ago...
So can anyone give me advise please, I am considering the MF M1 CDT & maybe the Stello 100 CDT but can find little info on how they would perform with the `supposedly` brilliant Eximus.
