    I have heard this player and i really like it for its smooth and foot tapping musicality. It's certainly the best i have heard through cd. What are your thoughts on this player? Does anyone have one and tried against other players and which ones? What is better for similar price if any? Thanks Jim.

    I've never heard an Avondale CD player, which is basically a modified Naim or Arcam player. However I've seen a lot about them and the opinions are consistent. I would expect the Avondale player to be up there mixing it with the best players available.

    Thanks for the reply mrpig. For the little time i heard it for it was very impressive. Just wanted to see if anyone had compared it other cd players that are out now.

    If you ask on the Pink Fish Media forum you'll find quite a few folk who know these players well. I read just today of someone who chose one over a Naim CDS2, and the CDS2 is no slouch.
