I've had a couple of Sqbx users ask me how my new Benchmark compares
with megadollar audiophile CD players. The short answer is "I don't know"
I've got a Pioneer Elite player, which is upscale but not audiophile,
and the Sqbx DAC combo beats it soundly.

I'm willing to help with a shoot out if there is someone with a high end
CD player and stereo that is "close" to where I live.
Washington DC area, close probably covers 50 to 100 miles.
The Benchmark is easy to hook up and move.

Email me off list if you are interested. At least, it should be fun
to listen to great music.

got the CD player, but 3,500 miles too far away I'm afraid!
