CD still far largest music selection

After all the talk of HD music and SACD, the higher resolutions are still a tiny proportional to the CD selections. My favorite music is still on CD and handful on vinyl. I cannot say the same for HD music or SACDs. Kudos to DCS for making a CD only player. Anyone compare the new Rossini to the Puccini?

Incidentally, from the entry-level-price-end, a couple of days ago I noticed :

interesting post. I haven't owned a CD player or transport for about four years. I still buy a lot of CD's as I find them to be the best value as compared to supposedly HD downloads or LP's that have been digitally recorded.

 

With CD's I buy them, rip them once and then store them away.

 

I think the answer to your question is with who has a DAC stage in their CD player that best appeals to your musical tastes.

 

But that's a hard think to determine. I've been using an Arcam FMJ D33 SuperDAC for a few years now and it continues to fully resolve the most subtle nuances of musical selections I thought that I knew well.

 

Meaning, of course, that it's difficult to compare unless you can do it in-home with music you know and for an extended period.

 

I don't have that opportunity as I live in the boonies, but I deal with a big city audio store that I trust to make recommendations. And, at the end of the day, I suspect that with CD players of "equal value" the change from one to another will be quite subtle.

 

My focus with the Arcam was on the best sound I could afford without having to pay thousands more for a milled aluminum billet case or glass porting with blue LED's. A black sheet metal case suits me just fine.
