    This is just about the best looking player I've seen. Does anyone have any experience of it?

    Their SACD player sounded very good (better to my ears than the Sony XA-3000) although it would seem that the fit & finish is not quite as good as one might hope on units of this price. It does look fantastic though.

    Ken Kessler of Hi-Fi News demoed it and raved about the sound quality. If Ken says it's good, it's good.

    Smooth and clear...really very good sound quality at that price level.
    Couldn't really fault the finish on the model I was looking at either.....it may simply be a bit of production line variation.

    Theres some company selling a vervios of this cd player called the Level 1 modified which is aparently even better sounding than the standard.

    The only problem I see with it is that every 60000 hours you need to replace the valves (ok so 60000 hours is a long time but if I bought a cd player for that much I 'd want to keep it till I drop dead.)
