Was thinking about making changes to my audio system. Not quite satisfied with the accuracy, detail, soundstage, etc. Then I played this DSD download using a Sony HAP-Z1ES. To say the least, I found new satisfaction in my existing setup. Most importantly, I realized what I REALLY wanted was NOT about the equipment. It was this kind of source material. Perfection. Brightness, clarity, dynamic range off-the-chart. Crisp and precise. This is what high-end audio should sound like. Expensive download, but well worth it. It is the best source material I own, including all my SACD's, which I play on a very expensive McIntosh CD (MCD550). Nothing compares to the sound of this download played on the Sony HiRes DSD player.
