    What CD player with Shindo ?

    What can I say? Sometimes I'm lazy. I like a balance in life tho, so I also have a Shindo phono pre that lets me spin my collection of 78s which has been the bulk of my record collecting over the past few years.

    When I first got the Zanden, some - at some other forum - suggested that the zanden would be too dark and similar to the Shindo. I disregarded those posts at the time as this view of Shindo is primarily espoused by those who are not familiar with it. I've found zanden to work extremely well with Shindo, especially on my fc Latours. Shindo is dynamic, it is natural, it is of a whole piece. Zanden is complimentary. Esoteric comes off as one would expect. Steely and hifi-ish. It was not to my taste after I had experience with the zanden.

    To quote a fellow traveler, "If you have an idea for what you are looking and if you don't expect the easy way of "pluggable components from the land of milk and honey", than you will have the correct prerequisites to build up a audio chain able to perform within a higher degree of harmonic properties. Instead of solely ingenious technical comprehension, a solid portion of common sense, consciousness, experience, sensitivity and refined spirit, will be the major properties to extend such a performance into real life instead of stunning superficiality of HiFi."

    I have kept the zanden dac and the sony VSE, both of which I use regularly. If I was in the market, I would probably go with LM as I have tremendous respect for that company and would be reluctant to spend more given the rapidly changing nature of digital gear.

    Paul, I think you are on the right track with the Modwright modded oPPo for the versatility alone.

    Don't worry about Gary, he's got tourettes syndrome

    Btw in talking with folks at Modwright the Oppo and sony are neck and neck with 2 channel audio performance getting a slight edge on Sony and functionality winning on the Oppo. I think dan has both these performing at A+ levels

    I tried to respond to your PM but can't seem to figure out how to do it on an Ipad. Keep getting an error message.

    In answer to your query I don't keep the controls up all the way.
    I adjusted these at your place because it appeared your speakers were not responding and were a little more difficult to drive.
    Either way I don't think this has anything to do with tube failure.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Again, did you buy some Shindo gear? If so, hope you are enjoying it.

    That is not correct. In the Shindo factory report you can find pics easily on the web, the source is a 301 system. No mention of a cd player whatsoever.

    Unless you have been there, which it sounds like you have not, I wouldn't be so quick to say it is incorrect. I am only reposting what someone else who actually visited said they saw. Obviously I don't believe this person is talking about their private space, however even there you can see CD's laying about. To me, a CD player would make sense in a "showroom", as you wouldn't want people operating a 301. I will try and find the poster of this info so you can tell them it's incorrect.
