I am happy i bought this player, it has, and is still, serving me very good quality audio, and video performance. The Wolfson DAC in the player, is good, so u can use this player, without using a stand alone DAC, and it still gives you very nice sound. The build quality is nice, with a heavy alu front, and good looks. It is a bit pricy, but you get what you pay for, a player for a Hi End, stereo or homecinema set-up. I like the top end products from Cambridge Audio, they are of good quality, and they are OK in price.
