Looking for comparisons between CD transports

@cooper52 - The CXC does not have an AES/EBU output, so that sounds like a non-starter. I may have overlooked that in your previous posts. FWIW, I had the Urd during trial period because it had AES/EBU output, along with a USB-C input, and I lik... 
Looking for comparisons between CD transports

@bdp24 - Terrific video! Thank you for sharing. In my view, he's one of a handful of excellent musicians who are respected but not famous. There are others like him-Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Townes Van Zandt (RIP), Buddy and Julie Miller come to mind.... 
Andrew Singer Of "Sound by Singer" passed away yesterday
Sorry to hear of his passing. He could be as acerbic as he was opinionated, but he knew high-end audio. Sound by Singer was my introduction to the joys of this hobby. RIP.
