After getting very tired of Japanese integrated amplifier components I finally made the move to something a lot better. I purchased an Arcam Solo CD Player and Paradigm Studio 100 speakers. The results are simply stunning. Although the speakers are new and take about 30 hours of listening to break in the music that I am listening to is remarkable. I listem primarily to jazz recorded in the 50's and 60's and the XRCD's are amazing to listen to..even little things like symbols and horn playing is great. For my first leap into audiophile equipment the Arcam Solo and Paradigm 100 speakers make a great simple system.
