The Best Source You Have Ever Heard?

Recommended Posts

Tell me?

I know mine but I'm intrigued as many still believe in "Source First" - and admittedly I still have some evidence that supports that...

Shame it missed out on DSD for me - I just find the music that little bit more authentic and involving generally. You know what? I've never even heard a streamer!
 

I use an old Mac Mini's digital output into the optical in on a Devialet. Are modern streamers much better?

For vinyl, mine probably when I had the hashimoto sut, I've listened to better turntables and arms but not for long enough. 

For digital, brief listen to DCS kit in nagraboys room at scalford years ago, other than that the exogal comet DAC I own playing lossless.

Oracle Delphi + Infinity Black Widow tonearm + Koetsu [something] Signature cartridge.

(Absolute Sounds demo - with Audio Research and Krell amps and Etude MP-1 loudspeakers speakers - at a Jeffries hi-fi show in Brighton about 35 years ago.)

How do you define source these days with streaming in the picture. Source of the source source?..

Best I ever heard is from a DAW.

Any bit perfect lossless data, is ‘perfect’, transparent DACs are inexpensive you can’t get ‘better’.

Stacey Kent from front row of Ronnie Scott’s before the refurbishment. 
 

If we’re talking about reproduced source, probably a Sondek.  Not the most accurate but the one I enjoyed most.

Weren't you distracted by a loud rattling sound, which would have been the BW's bearings with a Koetsu on the other end...
