    Exactly opposite to me Martin. Much like beer I guess, in kit, ears and music we are all different and have different tastes too.
    Another of those endless topics that can just go on and on ad nauseum.

    No, it can't be, because digital has come on leaps and bounds in the past 20 years... ah, how I laughed.

    Yeah those 1's and 0's have never sounded better. Except maybe on a Philips cd100?

    Now that (along with the CD101) was an awful player.

    My remark was tongue in cheek but yes they have their weaknesses. A charm too.

    No charm as far as I remember: flat, two dimensional players that would pop in and out of an equally flat, depthless, 'soundstage'.

    The two dimensional thing is certainly a trait of some cd players.

    I find no ambiguity in Paul's statement.
    how much does a well set up vinyl front end cost?
