Couldn't of put that better myself.Disagree, one should rightfully assume a CDP should play gapless CDs, and I've only heard of two that didn't do it - the CD5 of-course, and Emotiva's one and only CDP.
Arcam have issued a fix, but it's otherwise unacceptable.
And if a manufacturer does not explicitly state this on their spec sheet then they're being DISHOHEST.
I'll give you one example - an ultra high end company of optical vinyl cartridges were open about the fact that they won't play coloured vinyl records.
Gapless CD playback should be 100% expected from consumers - and if it can't then the manufacturer should explicitly say so.
