What it brings is the:
- asynchronous read of the disk (a CD transport has limitations)
- oversampling of Auralic if you turn it on.
Buffering of the first track needs time only and then streaming to DAC with or without
oversampling could be started. (most of car Cd Drives and Head Units does the same)
The the further tracks have time to read.
If the whole CD is in RAM you can jump from track to track without any delay.
I think Ram should not be problem because a CD is about 800Mb and it not necessarily need to be oversampled at ones. The played track and the next one before the end of first (just like now if you play big files)
CD transport has limitations:
- synchronous read of the disk
- no FEMTO wordclock on board.
- Laser head and mechanics ages not depending on usage
- Laser head and mechanics cost a lot to change
Solt drive of Teac or Apple are made for less money and with accurate read of cd-disk can be bitperfect. (If you know EAC you know what i am talking about.)
