THE QUINTESSENTIAL ANALOG SOUNDING CD PLAYBACK SYSTEM.

"...The Zanden 5000 Mk.IV/Signature D/A converter and 2000 Premium CD transport is the Continuum Audio Labs Caliburn-Cobra-Castellon of digital playback. It draws out both the detail and the emotional content of recorded music and presents it to you with an effortlessness that lets you relax into the music as you might at a live performance.

This exquisitely built, four-box combo costs well over $40,000 and uses a chipset rarer than Unobtainium, so it won't be flying off the shelves—nor are there that many audiophiles who could put it on their shelves in the first place. I hope it measures well, but, as with vinyl, I'm more interested in how it sounds. And from what I hear, the Zanden combo of Model 5000 Mk.IV/Signature and Model 2000 Premium proves that the holy grail isn't necessarily greater resolution, but better reconstruction of the music. Perhaps Humpty-Dumpty can be put back together " STEREOPHILE, Michael Fremer  |  Nov 26, 2006
