cse:Thaiman Thanks but i don't want large floorstanders and i already have a Densen CD player. Have you heard their amps?
I have own quite a few Densen in the past including a pair of B350. The lower range like B200/B300XS I had was tremendous value, the combo had all the timing and resolution that put many similar price amps to shame. Up the range, however it's a different story. I (and a few friends) thought my current ECS beat the top of the range Densen by some margin and Densen cost £1400 more! Too cloloured for my taste.
Digital side of thing....The 400XS cd player is go to be one of the top 5 "best CD player ever made, I reckon".
