By the way the retail price of your amp and player have recently gone up by a considerable margin (around 40% at Hifi corner), however AVonline, which has them at the same individual prices as Hifi corner, is selling them together as a package with over £700 off which imo is excellent valueIt's been 4 months now that I've had my PMA1600 / DCD1600 combination together, feeding my NVA Cube 2 speakers. There's not one day goes by where I regret the decision to go with this combo, I think they are both wonderful. I bought the PMA1600 2nd hand off another forum, and the DCD1600 from Hi-Fi Corner new. Just a heads up for Hi-Fi Corner from me. They gave me the best price I could find and also a brilliant PX deal on my Pioneer PD30 player. I'm loving them both.
