I liked the review a lot, especially the comparison with the Boulder integrated, which costs a chunk less than the CTH8550, although still pricey. Thought WP handled it well, the high price issue, voicing his preferences conscientiously and without being snarky.
One HUGE omission in the review: where the hell is the evaluation of the DarTZeel's vaunted built-in phono stage?!? I was pretty disappointed not being able to read this, as I've read some Japanese & Korean reviews of the CTH8550, which had pretty good evaluations of the phono capabilities of the unit. Kind of hit my forehead when it wasn't evaluated by Stereophile.
