Hi, I'm having a hard time choosing between these two SACD players. Has anyone heard them together?
Assuming I'm using a neutral sounding amp and speakers, what are the different sound characteristics of the C5xeMP and the X-05 in terms of soundstaging, timbre, immediacy, imaging, resolution, depth of bass, tonal color, timing etc? Which one would give a greater sense of musical realism?
Reason I'm asking is the 2 products are sold by different dealers where I live which means I have no way of auditioning them head-to-head using the same amp and speakers.
Hope someone can help me out here. Thanks.
