Forsell Air Reference CDT...recover the Air missing in your cd collection!
fabled Forsell Air Reference Mk.2 CDT #329,
fully-supported disc rides on a cushion of air,
AES-EBU XLR + SPDIF BNC/RCA digital out.
♥ "beautifully musical and involving...delivered up a HUGE
soundstage: unbounded, and limited by only the source
material; separation, layering, focus, delineation of individual
images, overall tonal colors, dynamics, and 'palp factor'
were all of the highest order yet experienced in our system...
extended, tight bass-line, a super midrange, open, airy
highs, & a gigantic soundstage...we preferred the Forsell
'Swedish Pants Pressor' over the Esoteric P-2S for
its startingly immense, airy soundstage, its separation
of vocals and instruments, and its sheer musicality...
if you want an almost perfect compromise between
detal, musicality, transparency, and the lush life,
with unbeaten imaging and separation, think
about a Forsell.
" —Jonathan Scull, Stereophile

a better way to spin your cd's...
fabled Pioneer PD-S95 cd transport,
super-duty ver Stable-Platter drive,
BNC + RCA + Toslink digital outputs,
outperforms Nak 1000mb at ½ $.
"...I was continuously impressed with the general feel & mechanical
performance of the S95. It simply felt right. Everything worked well
the first time and each time after. Overall construction was first-rate...
Pioneer S95 was sonically clearer, with greater resolution of detail...
The natural ambience of a real physical space was more believable...
wonderfully natural soundstages with great amounts and gradations
of width and depth...consistantly open and spacious, with precise
placement of performers within the stage. The perspective was that
of a mid-hall seat...a greater sense of throbbing power due to the
transport's speed, detail resolution, & overall clarity...kept it's poise
through the most demanding material...the presentation was open,
orchestrally rich in tonal color, detailed, & extended...
