I thought I'd start a thread to discuss reviews elsewhere. It looks like the DV79 is making quite a mark! This one was started by an Arcam dealer in the USA, so I'll leave it up to you to decide if he's biased! http://www.audiocircle.com/circles/viewtopic.php?t=10868&highlight=dv79 In there you will find this link to a PDF of AV Tech's review. http://www.audiophilesystems.com/arcam/AVT_DV79.pdf I wonder, what's Arcam position on where the DV79 would fit in the CD range as a CD player? Surely not above the CD82?
