In 1984 I had a great summer job that payed a heck of a lot of money, after setting aside what I needed for University (which wasn't that much in Canada), I had enough to either buy one of two things I coveted; a Rolex or the Yamaha CDX-1, after several auditions I decided that CD still didn't cut it for me and just couldn't compete with vinyl. I opted for the Rolex which I still own and will be passing on to my son, whereas the CDX-1 has been confined to the dustbin of history. I didn't buy my first CD player until 2000 when I finally purchased one of the last Karik/Numerik combos that Linn made. The point being, in hi-fi, a second sober thought before making a large purchase can go a long way and being an early adopter has its drawbacks.
