The other day I was playing the Jeff Beck Les Paul tribute DVD and at one point (I forget which song it was, but it was an instrumental) I thought, "wow, that sounds good!" Every now and then something like that happens. This is in 2ch mode with Audioquest Black Mamba II interconnects. Like others, I hope to hold on to this player for a while.
Now that I think about it, that brief comparison with my CD player should perhaps be redone, because I wasn't using the same interconnects. The CDP has Kimber Hero.
