    i've just got a pioneer 565a dvd player and it's great
    but i'm thinking about whether its worth getting a standalone cd player for better sound quality on playback of audio cds.

    do you guys think it's worth me getting a Harman Kardon CD Player ??
    i'm thinking of getting the HK FL8550

    I am thinking of doing the same at the moment I was looking at the Marantz DV6400 Universal Player (not released yet) in place of my CD and DVD player, but was not sure about CD replay, The best bet is to arrange to go into our local HiFi dealer and do an audition, back to back with your player in CD mode, you can then decide if it is worth spending the money.

    The Harman is a nice unit The FL8380 is a better than average 5 Discer!!! the HD750 is a nice single discer too FL8550 is no more IIRC unless you are not in the UK so it woulk be an 8380 better than a Marrantz CD4300 for sure!

    FL8380 five disc? I do like multi-changers, how much does it retail for, how would it compare to something like a CD72.
