    Hi,

    http://www.hificorner.co.uk/teac.htm

    Does anyone know if this is available yet and how well it performs? I came across it while doing a search on the Teac AG-800 receiver as it looks perfect for my needs due to lack of space for a full sized receiver.

    A Hard disk player in theory should last longer than mechanical CD jukeboxes such as the sony 300 & 400 CD storage players and would be a lot quicker locating and loading. Looks the dogs thingys to me! I expect it costs the earth!

    Cheers,
    David.

    I aint heard of the Teac unit TBH David, but Yamaha & Sony (HARD-1000 have had these units out for quite a while now and are they are becoming available at price levels now which makes them an interesting option IMHO, Im sure the Sony HDR1000 was going recently for £300.
    The Yamaha IMHO looks like the best bet for playback from a HDD based CD recorder/player on the market, that has met with very good reviews from the mags so far usual rrp £700. You could buy one of these units now, and in future send the digital output to an offboard DAC improving playback further.

    Thanks for the info. The Yammy & the Sony are both full size though........... it has to be Midi due to space issues.
