I use this machine for 2 months Envron. Globel this CD provides a well balanced and trs trs pure. Use to listen classical, rock, jazz, Latin music, not really for fans of hard rock as not serious enough accorcheuses for it. I actually possde chain Micromega minium complte, CD, 60w amp (also available in 80 and 120 W) and the tuner. The set provides excellent sound. The set is connected to the speaker B and W 200 series are my taste a bit below from the quality that comes from the electronic part. I think in the future to replace them, can be pat the JM Reynaud Twin.
Design issue, we plustot in sober good taste, each unit is slim and minimalist but enjoyable (the aluminum version is black, I think, the most class). The only ngatif is relative to the on / off button plac derrire devices, not very practical as well as the CD tray makes a noise when you open dsagrble. It's dtail compared the quality of cost that the channel provides.
