In fact that's why i want to upgrade...i had an Pionner AVR wich was more forward sounding, and it worked very nice with the Marantz.

I now have a Arcam 750, and i actually prefer using the AVR's DAC, sounds less "remote" and polite...with the Marantz DAC connected via analog, i sense that for Rock for example it lacks a bit attack and everyting remains too atmospheric, but it still is very nice with Vocals, Acustic, Jazz and such music.

That's why i am interessed in the Audiolab 8200cd / Cambridge Audio 851c...they have digital filters that allow sublte chenges to sound...maybe it would be a nice feature to use, according to the different music we are listening

Sorry to disagree with some here BUT like anything else 99% of the time you get what you pay for i have been a one box cd player user since 1983 i have owned more than 10 different makes and models most of them over 3k i also owned the Oppo BDP-105 as backup very very good $1,200.00 unit BUT it is not my Chord One.


Chord CPM-2600 amplifier
Chord One cd player
Acoustat 1+1 speakers
Life without Acoustat is possible but WHY.

Oh my! Somebody doesn't understand the law of diminishing returns to say nothing of not understanding hearing bias.
