I'm currently building a new system and searching for a CD player with a maximum budget of $2500. When I scanned through the Nov. issue and spotted the CDP-8 review, I dove right in.
Having been impressed by a few NuForce products, and a longtime fan of Wes my interest level was high. Then we hit the wall. A $1500 CD player powered by a wall wart. Really? Gimme a break. Hows about a few dozen AA batteries or perhaps a hand crank?
I really don't know what they were thinking, but the CDP-8 is off my list.
