Streaming is a step backwards from the pursuit of being an audiophile, IMO. Someone however may come up with a practical solution to elevate streaming to audiophile standards.

Actually I've done that with recordings, elevate 'em to Hi-Fi standards. But it needs to done on the fly to be practical. The tech is not quite there yet. :smoke:

I'm not going around counting, but pretty sure we have 4 dvd players, one of them is an Oppo so it's universal, and one dedicated cd player. I can say with surety none of the dvd players have been used in 5-6 years. The cdp hasn't been used quite a while either.

Except for movies, unless someone comes over, I almost never spin a disc.  I do have:

5 Oppo Players that do Blu-Ray and the rest of the formats
1 Oppo DVD Universal
1 Integra DVD Universal
1 Sony that does Blu-Ray and SACDs

Not that I use them all (I think one or two are not even connected).

8 total

2 Sony: 2 DVD, one with HDMI output and the other I use to play CDs.
2 Panasonic: 1Bluray and 1 DVD Recorder
2 Pioneer: 1 Bluray and 1 non-Bluray Universal player

2 portable DVD players (not used very often)

I also have a Technics portable CD player that I took to work to listen to CDs. I killed 2 Sony portable CD players in the last couple of years.

2 USB Apple Super drives (one given to me as it only seems to work on my MacBook Air)
1 cheap DVD player on my low priority AV system

All together they get used maybe 5 times a year.

Used to have a Sony XA-20ES CDP, but sold it after it spent years in the box and I have two Macs connected to my audio system with 4 external HDs for backup (2 are always rotated in and out of the safety deposit box).

One Oppo DVD as transport, in the process of dying so in need of replacement.
One Sony Blu Ray for the living room TV, no clue what model.

One cheap Sony Blu-Ray upstairs, and one downstairs.

I did just pick up an old JVC CD player. I've been all PC for the last 5 years, it's nice to just plop a disc in and push play for a quick listen.

What is missing?

My method has to do with sampling. There needs to be a way to measure the quality of a recording on the fly. If I over-sample a recording it can become sterile (stripped of harmonics) but depending on the recording it may need to be sampled 1 to several/times, I do this by ear, to do it on the fly needs some kind of recording measurement system so the dac knows when its good enough. Some recordings are garbage and can't be improved. Streaming sites the recordings I can assume are of reasonably good quality. :smoke:
