I have used ( and still do ) the XLO RR HDCD for years to burn in and demagnitize all kinds of systems: Levinson, Krell, VTL and more. Even in my car CD player, a Bose Wave, portable CD players, uploaded to an i pod nano, you name it. All have been improved in sound quality with this CD. Highly Recommended! James Ciechanowski
