Thinking of adding a dedicated CD Transport for spinning CDs to my setup, pondering some things beforehand…may make or break my decision to get one.
The CD Transport (Audiolab 6000CDT) has a very good clock sitting before the coaxial digital output.
Will the clock quality of the transport (over coax) into the Directstream make any difference, even in comparison to different Transports, given that the DS Dac ignores the incoming clock?
Currently use an Oppo 203 over i2s into the Dac, and wondering if the clock “thing” makes getting a different Transport worth it.
CAN different transports can sound different into the DS Dac, given the “throw the clock away” nature of it?
Good transport over co-ax Vs my Oppo over i2s?
Is it a case that quality wise, is the coax input particularly worse than i2s?
