I have the venerable PS Audio Lambda transport. It plays through all the drop-outs on the Pierre Verany Digital Test CD. There are 24 tracks in three groups with tracks of increasing difficulty within each group. The first group is individual drop outs and the other two contain drop outs close together. The Lambda passed them all, even the last track in each group which is the most challenging. The largest drop out is 4.00mm visible to the naked eye. My OPPO 205 player is almost as good but stumbles on very largest drop out.
I have a disk with some drop outs one track. Both the Lambda and the OPPO play them perfectly. However, my PWT coughs and chokes and ultimately can play the selection.
What could be wrong?
