I agree but endless discussions can be fun and worthwhile too.

Speaking of natural sound. I consider un-amplified sound from various musical instruments as my reference.

As we have an upright piano, an organ and a guitar I always listen to the notes that these produce. When there is an opportunity to listen to bands during fiesta, church celebration, school celebrations etc I make it a point to listen properly. Through time I have "memorized" the various notes of the musical instruments.

I compare the notes I have "memorized" vs the notes I listen during sessions. Depending on how far the reproduced sound is that I make my judgement.

I used to attend recitals and concerts of classical music ... again its been awhile too ... but I think I've yet to hear a reproduction as "natural" as sitting in the 2nd row in the middle of a concert hall.  The experience will always be different IMHO.  Personally, I prefer the "canned" version we get on our A/V systems ... no need to get dressed, drive over, line up, enjoy for an hour or two, then do the reverse.  I can even shush an over enthusiastic cymbalist  ;D

Just wanted to share pics of CDPs that I have and a friend. All pics taken from the internet as my camera is not working. All use Burr Brown PCM53.

You can see write-ups of these CDPs and DACs at http://audio-heritage.jp except for NEC CD-609.

Yamaha CD-3


LoD DAD-800


LoD HDA-001 (the one on the left)


NEC CD-609 (Not mine. Recently bought by a friend at the Pier)

Nice collection.  I particularly like the HDA-001.

I like that one too.

Napaka-kapal tumunog nitong Lo-D HDA-001. Kung sa aking lang, low to mid level turntable ang katapat - kaya hindi ko na masundan pa iyung Elac Miracord ko dati.

Hindi na yata uso mga parallel input D/A chip based DAC. Karamihan ng DAC ngayon ay serial input. Wala na akong makitang bagong labas na modelo na gamit gamit mga chip na ito.
