This article was on the front page. And this is the caption under the title:
A CD player and DAC that punches above its price Tested at £15998 / AU$31390

I mean... It's probably a good sounding product, but at this budget I don't think people are looking for products that are "punching above" their weight, surely this is "cost-no-object terrytory, lol.

Yes, at 16 grand for a CDP, you're already well past severely diminishing returns.

Its still just pocket money if you are a serious roll over Euromillions winner, anything under £20,000.00 is just thoughts for a third system for the visitors room in your estate....

I quote:

'this CD player and DAC offers luxury-grade quality at a fraction of the price.'

WTF is 'luxury grade quality', and what does it cost a fraction of the price of?!

I auditioned many of the players that came in for repair, and although subtle I could hear clear differences. That was why, in the 90s, I bought that particular top of the Philips range bitstream model.

I'm not sure I can still hear the difference now.
