The QLS QA-550 remote digital WAV transport is designed from the ground up to be a very high-end audiophile audio playback solution. Forget your old, bulky and fragile CD transport / player, which is based on technology that is over 20 year old.
No matter what the quality of your CD transport / player is, its probably not going to come close to offering the same performance as this compact, futuristic little gadget. Utilising cheap and widely available SD memory cards that can each store up to 16gb of uncompressed WAV files, the CD is a thing of the past.
The ideal CD transport is not a CD transport, its one of these WAV SD transports.
Reasons why the QA-550 is better than a traditional CD transport...
WAV files are the favourite format choice of people who can't bear the sonic difficiencies of the lossy compressed MP3 format yet want to store, preserve and playback treasured CD collections from their computer hard disk drives.
Up until now, these people would simply be content to use their computer as their main Hi-Fi source component.
Whilst excellent at converting CDs to WAV files, the PC / Mac is still not the ideal music plackback device. The majority if PCs don't have the best powersupplies and are absolutly packed with noisy, interference inducing components. Multiple noisy fans buzz away constantly and due to components fighting over limited resources, "pops" and stutters on the audio are not uncommon.
In these days of hugely expensive utility bills, the electricity consumed in putting a computer to use for considerable periods just for music playback is also quite considerable as is wear and tear to the hardisks.
