DOGE 6

Anyone heard this cd player, or heard about it?  I just listened to the Ayre C7 and the C5 and was quite happy with what I got but for 6 hefty thousands... for the latter, I don't think that it is quite a home appliance.  Maybe for professional use.  The Doge had some interesting info on this web site and as I am in search for a CD player, ...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Py5GC_z1kGs

If you are going that route you might as well

look into the Shanling CD-T1000SE.

Do they offer it with a matte

Do they offer it with a matte finish for the front panel?

doge 6

I have heard the Doge 6 and it sounded excellent.  I own a Doge 8 preamp with built-in phono pre.  I would compare this $1500 unit to anything costing up to 4 times as much.  The phono section is killer and worth the price of the entire unit just by itself.  I think the products are good and if the US vendor, Pacific Valve stands behind it, I woul try the 6 if I needed a CD.

Doge6 CDP

I have owned a Doge 6 cd player for about 2 months now and can recommend it very highly. I have previously owned a Shanling T80SE, with extensive Burson mods, a Cambridge 640C, and a NAD M66 which I used as a stand alone CD player. I also auditioned a NAD 545B, a Denon 2000, a Bryston (can't remember the model) and a Vincent/Shengya, none of which are in the same class. I nearly bought an Opera Consonance after being sold on the sweet and rich tube sound, but thought I'd try the Doge after reading a Chinese sourced article rating all Chinese players. The Consonance scored 75/100 and the Doge was rated at 90. The Doge has great tonality, texture, presence, richness and warmth, without sacrificing any detail. I paid about AU$1,400 including freight. I prefer female vocals, but the Doge is great with all musical instruments, especially guitar and piano. I have Osborn Titan Reference speakers and an Italian AudiaFlight3 integrated amp. Power, passion, purity and presence!

Do you still feel this way?

It may end up being my personal treat for Christmas and New Years, ...heck with the third salary drop I am struggling with.  We've got one life to live.
