"Hopefully, the criteria for “better” is more emotional involvement with the musical performance, notwithstanding the particulars of better bass, a warmer midrange, more extended or crystalline highs, or a comparatively deeper stage. With this in mind, I would rather listen to music with the even handed musical performance of the DLIII than suffer through the various particular strengths, and attendant weaknesses, of many phonograph cartridges previously reviewed on 10 Audio. This is similar to the differences between tube and solid state amplifiers. The really good ones of either technology are not necessarily better than the other technology although differences are apparent. The PS Audio Digital Link III with Cullen Circuits Stage 4 modification allows the sound from CDs to be more enjoyable than I have ever experienced." - 10 Audio
