- I tested
- I heard it from every angle
- It sounds the fire of God
- But I have no idea about its price because I forgot to ask, but if it follows the logic of all other Accuphase, it is about 100% more expensive than its Japanese price, so: around 5'380 euros at the end.
I do not like talking about his solo CD player when I was not able to put on several sources to which I am accustomed. Say it is worthy of being labeled a very good CD player in the universe. It is easy to use, fairly fast, and also in a zipper plastic when the rest of the machine is polished aluminum (ouioui I see all).
The small detail that kills, it is the button on the front panel, which allows you to route the signal to an external DAC ... if it ever happened that you have an even better than the Accuphase.
But it's very expensive CD player in my opinion. For my part, I think looking for a platinum not too bad, and to process the signal by one of the best dac on the market. It is even cheaper and the result is the same, but it does not have the prestige or the presence of having a single golden box that does everything.
Overall I can recommend this product, but must anyway indicate that it is sold 100% more expensive than the Japanese market. And every time I repeat, like a parrot, but it really Chiiiibiiiip to stuff such a pricing policy.
