Recently we have two interesting offers in the classified section. Placebo2 was selling Arcam DV88+ DVD Player and Madders was selling Arcam CD23 player. Those are both very good machines and this is where the interesting point comes into place: there are both being replaced by HTPC. In Placebo2s case HTPC offers better the picture quality than DV88+, while in Madders case excellent audio quality from RME DIGI96/8 sound card, combined with the benefits of music library management via HTPC makes Arcam CD23 player a redundant. The case that the both items on sale are Arcam is just a coincidence; it could have been any other brand. More important is that HTPC are becoming more readily accepted alternative to traditional equipment, without compromising either audio or video quality. Is this the future of home A/V?
