    - How long have you use it?

    Purchased 04/2005. Down in August 2006 and repaired by the dealer. Re-down a few months later.
    Definitely down since yesterday.
    Details of failure: dysfunction that eject buttons, drawer does not open, and finally a CD that are read once in a while and then need to tap the tray to the CD to be "hung".

    - What is so special that you like most and least?

    The sound suits me particularly.

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    Essentially Denon Nad and who were in the budget set at the time (less than 400 €)

    - How would you rate the quality / price?

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...

    I do not think, but the question of the day ... I am extremely cooled reliability problems encountered but I do currently no equivalent sound in these budgets. I tested today the Nad C515 for example and I am not convinced. And then € 380 every 3 years ... It does not suit me.

    In summary: I love the sound, but it is not reliable.

    - Which feature do you like the most / the least?

    Very good sound.

    - Did you try any other models before buying it?

    Mainly Denon and Nad I could buy with my budget

    - How would you rate its value for money?

    Bad because of the reliability problems I had.

    - Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?…

    I don't think so... I'm very disappointed by its reliability but I still haven't found a device that sounds better in this price range. For example, I tested today a Nad C515 and the sound quality didn't convince me. And I don't want to buy a new one every three years...

    Summary: I love how it sounds but it is not reliable at all.
