Ack, is the SDR-5000 about to come for real? It has been rumored for a looooong time (together with a 2-chassis full function preamp)...
If someone attends this event, please ask if the 4000S Pro can be upgraded to SL condition. Also, please inquire about the availability and details of the DMC 30SS to SS2 upgrade. Thanks much!
Yes I would concur with Ack and state the SDR-4000SL CD Processor is a dead end product,
An obvious +1 from me ...What I will say, the SDR4000SL has playback quality very similar to Hi res files. We know this from real world experience. What is wrong with a 44.1Khz CD player that has the ability to play back recordings with such sound quality?
Today, there are a large number of high quality Phonograph/Vinyl playback systems, why has the market decided Vinyl is worth the investment?
As long as CD's exist in the world of music, there will be a need for a high quality CD player that can extract the last bit of accurate information from these recordings.
The belief that high resolution files alone will cure all sonic ills is a fantasy driven by marketing. High quality sound reproduction is not that simple. As much as Audiophile's don't like the idea, high quality sound reproduction requires a complete system approach.
Some part of the player may have this resolution but what counts is the final, effective signal to noise figure of the whole component. 130 is worthless except in a digital sound editing suite. A very well done 70dB, say, is all you need for top notch audiophile sound in a medium.
