I purchased the BC C5i online but returned it after one week because the unit seemed better suited for an office or bedroom system where sound quality is not so important. I tried not to be hyper-critical since the unit was new but could't get past the lack of bass depth and clarity in my system. Maybe this shortcoming would improve after a few weeks but using small monitor speakers (Totems), I wasn't so sure. BTW, the large green numbers on the volume setting were distracting when listening to music... at least to me. What followed was a trip a local audio store, borrowing a few integrated amplifiers and discovering the Naim Nait. The compact, cool running Nait sounded fantastic with my Totem monitors, and much more musical IMO than the C5i. Highly recommended.
Best Regards, Kendrick.
