Well, I have been demoing cd players for quite a while now and finally settled on an Arcam FMJ CD36, which I ordered from my dealer today. ETA in about a week. After demoing a Jolida JD100A, Shanling CT100, Linn Ikemi, Meridian G08, Classe 100cdp and Ayre C7, I decided that I really enjoyed the detail and soundstage of the British players, with the best deal being available on the CD36. It will be mated with an AVP-700. Can't wait for delivery as cd's are not sounding too great on my Denon 2900. Now my major upgrading will finally be finished.
