I need some opinions from audiophiles who have owned or heard these decks. Which one do you prefer and why? Price is not a factor i'm looking for the best SQ period. The Denon is the only one without an external dc/dc converter. Does that really matter? and how does the A100 compare to the A1 and Z1? is it really worth the extra price for the A1 or Z1?
I read in some forums that the Nak 700 is even better than the Z1 and Alpine F1?
Is this true or just BS?
I'm looking for soundstage, depth, separation, clean pure signals.
