    Question: Can someone please remind me what the indicator light under the "FMJ" emblem on the left-hand part of the front panel means, on both the DV27 and the CD23?

    The light turns red on my CD23 while playing some CDs but is off while playing other CDs. I don't recall ever seeing it illuminated on my DV 27.

    I think it means you're playing an HDCD.

    Just arrived back from holiday with a few HDCD's to try out my A23. Seems to offer a better sound and yes the red light is on.

    I think also its HDCD. On my CD 92 (DSC DAC) it lights very red bright. There are not may HDCD's around. I have some of ANDY SUMMERS end MIKE KNOPFLER and its souds good. Look also at www.hdcd.com

    It does indeed indicate that you are spinning a CD which is HDCD encoded, for some excellent examples of HDCD encoding check out the remastered Mike Oldfield back catalogue, Amarok and Platinum come to mind as outstanding recordings.
