If you look around the web, some tube suppliers offer ultra low noise tubes.

Yes ERM, I own one and must say without doubt it's it's the perfect thing to experiment with for DSD downloads (or rips for that matter).

These things work like a charm. I have transformer hum whenever the plasma tv gets turned on (same circuit), so I got this quiet device built into a box with half a BC6000 which I plug the mono amps into. There's a switch to defeat the QD portion when tv is off ... so no heat. http://www.bluecircle....

Bryston BDP-1

Anybody own or auditioned this digital file player?
Looks like a nice simple unit with no moving parts and built with quality components by a reputable manufacturer. AES/EBU and SPDIF out ... no USB.
Requires external USB drive for input.
