    At first greeting for ALL, and sorry for my bad English.

    I have a question. I am A32 owner and have a possibility to purchase CD33T or CD23T. Both are new (not used) and approximately equally prise.
    Can you advise me, what player sounds better with A32. In various tests i have reading CD23 is a STAR and CD33 is not so good as 23. But CD23 together with A22 sound not good, although separately are super.

    I can`t compare myself, because CD23 available only in other city (about 1000 km from Moscow) and there are no A32 and CD33.

    Thank YOU for advice

    Hi,

    I have the CD33 but didn't have a chance to compare it to the CD23. I can say that I really enjoy it, and that it excels at acoustic music, techno and trance and well-produced rock. It's not as happy with alternative rock/punk - occasionally cymbals can seem a little distorted - but how much this is down to accurately reproducing poor recordings I can't tell. There are some positive reviews out there:

    Definitely audition first. Good luck.

    I would rather take one CD23 than two CD33. I had them on two occasions for comparison at home and (in my setup) I simply did not like CD33.
    I still think it is a stepdown done from technical reasons. Of course Arcam will never confirm this...
