    Whilst purchasing a new S-video cable the other day i noticed that the shop had a CD player from the above company for sale.

    I've never heard of this company...

    Out of interest, is this player any good?

    My lack of knowledge on all things HiFi (brand wise) is sadly lacking.

    Adzman.

    Well, from the specs these things aren't bad at all - what they sound like I have no idea. How much was it and which dealer?

    Mark.

    It was in a Sevenoaks outlet & i think (cant be sure) it was about £800.00 as it was ex-demo / stock clear.

    Made me look twice as this is not the sort of brand they stock in this place....

    I know the brand, in fact i (think) i was looking at amps from them a while back...... i never got as far as listening, but the advice i cant disagree with, with regards to the specialist manufacturers, make sure you have a good listen because the experience can be somewhat different to that of more mass market

    John Shearne amps have had loads of reviews (if you can trust reviews:rolleyes: ). I have listened to them at HiFi shows, they were OK but nothing outstanding, except they fitted a bright blue power LED which looked nice. I suspect the CD player would be similar, but sometimes you can get a suprise and find the perfect bit of Kit for your system.

    Same advice for buying any equipment, take it home for a demo and listen to it for a few hours, this applies even if a piece of equipment has rave reviews.
