There is no such an animal as "CD or CD Player
Demagnetizing is important in the field of the Tape
Recorders. CDs are pure optical, non magnetic devices.
If you hear some improvement, this is in your
imagination only. Do not waste your money for such a ....
(Some may cost from US$15,00-150,00).
High quality powert cord..???
....."After finishing all my
listening comparisons during
the preparation of this review , I went through
the snakepit of cables behind my two equipment
cabinets and, to my chagrin,
the Mark Levinson No.26S preamp had been plugged into a
circuit an el cheapo
power cord, going through an Adcom ACE-515 AC Enhancer.
With all due haste, I reconfigured
the AC connection from the No.26S with the correct
Tiffany cord, into a 15 amp dedicated
What a difference! The sound was more open, more
dynamic, and more listenable, lending
credibility to the argument that dedicated circuits
and high-quality power
cables really can make
a difference."..... (Lewis Lipnick, Stereophile , June 1992, p.148).
What an imagination or ...something more....
LP sounds better than CDs.
Some excellent recordings are mastered digitally, and
sound great on LPs. This suggests that THERE IE NOTHING
INHERENTLY BAD ABOUT DIGITAL.
Some find that LPs sound better than CDs.
In general, there are good and bad CD players,
just as there are good and bad turntables, cartridges,
and tone arms. In moderately priced systems, there
will be some signal damage from the turntable system
and some signal damage from the CD player.
Digital recording is the best achievement in the
The future? Who knows!

Audio Connection cables for $300/foot?
.....Of the various interconnects auditioned,
CellomStrings and Acrotec 6N-A2030 balanced cables
sounded the best from preamp to power amp, the latter
being slightly more open and transparrent. Both cables
were extraordinary in retrieving much more spatial and
harmonic information than any of the others. I also
preferred single -ended Cello Strings and Acrotec
interconnects between digital sources and the Palette
unit....The Palette's most striking achievement,
however, was the way it reproduced the personality of
the music, musicians, and hall acoustics.....
......All of this is what the Palette preamplifier
reproduced, which I've heard no other do. No more
generic-sounding concert halls, instruments, or
musicians. A plethora of musical colors was uncovered,
the Cello extracting so much more energy and immediacy
out of those tired old recordings I've heard dozens of
times. Sure, lots of preamps are dynamic, colorful,
sonically engaging. But the way the Palette allowed
the music's humanity to speak for itself, conveying
each performer's finest shading and nuances, was where
it set a new standard......
The quality of the connecting cables and
the connectors is very important..
but " cable who allows the music's humanity to speak
for itself, conveying each performer's finest shading
and nuances, was where it set a new standard....."OH, NO, This to much!!!
This is annother mith or worst -propaganda, about
"special expensive miracle
cables" for a price comparable
to good CD player ( where the connectors only
are very important).
