"It's the timing and cleanness of transients. It's spectacularly unconfused. It maintains musical tension and swing like a tune which really locks into its groove. It conveys a particular rightness which, like 1st- or no-order speakers, can mint listeners who wouldn't listen to anything else. On that score, both decks had the same flavour. The Terminator simply added a whiff of 'analogue' or 'tube' feel. Being digital and solid-state, that suggested very deliberate know-how; and finesse to obtain just the right dose. "

JAY'S AUDIO, founded by Jacky Ho, focused on designing and manufacturing Redbook CD transport, CD Player using the Philips CDPRO2 LF, and CDM4 mechanisms for nearly two decades.
Today, despite the advancement, and evolution of the computer music playback, the convenience of music streaming via PC/streamer, Jacky still believe in the standalone digital CD transports are the best way to reproduce music.
Redbook CD at 16bit, 44.1kHz is all one needs.
"Though the Kinki unmistakably belonged to our generic Swiss school, it included that other Swiss, subtle yet distinctive, Nagra aroma. It derives from their signature obsession with tubes even though in much of their recent gear, they don't use valves to get there. Without impact on the noise floor to maintain superb magnification powers, it injects a whiff of textural extra and transient ease. I needn't spell out what that says about the M1's sell price."
