I paired my MCR603 with Focal 706v speakers.

They look and sound fantastic! Not too fussy about positioning.

I,ve just purchased the Ceol N8 together with a pair of Bowers&Wilkins 685. The sound is fantastic. Had a problem with the N8, the CD draw refused to open. Returned it to the shop and swapped for another N8. That works fine. I considered the Marantz aswell, think it looks better, but the Denon had more features, Spotify for example. I,m technically ******** so streaming, airplay, spotify are all new to me. The set up however was smooth and easy. I control the unit via the Denon app on my Samsung S2. There are so many features and possibilities to listen to music. I've only had the unit for a couple of days, but i'm very impressed. You won't find a better pair of speakers in the same price range than the B&W.

Another CR603 vote here

Had mine running with Neat Motive 2's, B&W CM5's and now Monitor Audio RX2's but heard one with KEF R300's, PMC GB1i's and more recently Monitor Audio PL100's and they all sounded absolutely superb!

Yes the PL100's deserve better amplification BUT the CR603 didnt struggle with them at normal volumes; like the KEF R300s they just sang with ease!

Shows you how capable the CR603 is!

Denon DM38 is ok; great little system in fact but no where near the level of the CR603

CEOL I've only heard as its been playing in the shop with B&W 685's and Monitor Audio RX1's; sounded great but couldnt give a proper review as it was 'passing by' listening
