    Hey guys!

    My Sony CD changer finally pake dit in! It is almost 10 years old so I guess it's not surprising :eek:

    Now... I have read all the DAc FAQs and found them to be WONDERFUL! I'm going to go with a Cambridge Audio S700 (or DAC Magic 2) whcihever Ican find.

    What I need to know is :
    Has anyone been to a Richer Sounds in North London and seen either of these models?

    Also:
    I want a 5-disc CD changer. I don't want an expensive one but I need one with an optical (or true 75 OHM BNC out).

    Can anyone suggest a model and where I can get it?
    I was thinking of the Pioneer PD F607 25 Disc CD Changer. Does anyone know much about this player?


    Cheers,
    Ken

    The S700 DAC is discontinued. Good luck finding one of those. I would look on ebay or somewhere similar for DAC's. I bought a DAC from a friend on another forum for £60 (a Cambridge DAC3). Definetly try second hand, theres not much to go wrong with a DAC.

    Personally I use a cheap ass Pioneer DV-350 as a transport into this DAC, and for less than £200 total, I have a CD player that sounds as good as most costing around £500.
