Hi, my wife & I trialled 3 CD players yesterday at Superfi in Camden - Advance Audio MCD 203, Arcam CD73 and Roksan Kandy CD Mk3. The Kandy was the best - nice detail across the full range, tight & weighty bass, good vocals, smooth treble. I recommend anyone interested in a new CD go and audition one, and several other players to get a comparison. Staff at Superfi were very busy, but friendly and willing to help, and they let us use their demo room with minimal interference - not bad for London!
Also hoping to hear ex dem Unison Research Unico CDP which is heavily discounted. I've heard its more expensive brother the Unico CD, and it gives beautiful sounds. Admittedly the rest of that system was absolutely incredible.
We're looking to find a new CD player to go with Audiolab 8000S amp and Polk Audio RT600 2 way floorstanders in a smallish room 13ft by 17ft. Existing player is Denon DCD435, played through an Audio Alchemy DAC via an optical link.
