This is from a review of a $10,000 Levinson CD transport at audioreview.com: "... I expected the unit to be fabulous from an aesthetic standpoint and I was not let down ... Now, that is where the wonder wears thin and the metal is put to the fire. I set it up ... and let it come to thermal equilibrium for about 17 hours. I played a variety of disks ... The sound became closed in and the voice took on the nature of sounding hi-fi-ish ... I put the CD back into my mainstay [...] transport (a Cambridge D500SE modified with a mortite damped chassis) and it kicked the snot out of the 31.5. I actually placed a call to an audiophile buddy and he heard the difference over the phone and picked the Cambridge with no prodding or information given about which unit was playing."
