So this may sound really stupid but what makes a transport a good transport and superior to another?
Is it the use of a better reading laser, ect?
Also how much of a change would you see from moving from a true dedicated transport than say a CDP or universal player used as a transport hooked up to the same DAC?
I know that the Source matters but in terms of transports I didn't see how "big" of a difference it would make seeing that the DAC would be doing the D/A converison which to me would seem like one of the biggest steps in the whole process.
The only one thought that comes to my mind is the better the transport the less jitter? is that correct or am I just totally lost. :o
I mainly ask as a lot of times I see people spend a lot on a nice external DAC but then are using a universal player or a cheaper transport, then you have transports like Wadia ect that are very $$$.
