I've been a Head-Fi lurker for a while, so I thought I'd introduce myself. When I was a youngster in the 80's, I always dreamed of building up a nice audiophile system. Well, as time went on and I went off to college, I sort of put those aspirations off for a while. Recently, I've rekindled those flames! Being married and having a young son, my most opportune time for listening is away from home during breaks at work. So, I thought getting into headphone listening would be best for me... at least for now! I've gained much insight from these forums and have recently acquired a set of Etymotic ER-4Ps, an Apple iPod 15GB, a Headroom Total Airhead, and a Tivoli Model CD player. To further enhance my office listening pleasure, I just ordered a Meier HA-1 Mk II, a pair of Grado RS2s, and some DiMarzio interconnects. I "SHOULD" now be set for in-office and portable listening


Anyway, I just thought I'd say "Hi."

Hi robinje!

Welcome to Head-Fi! And, since you're already tossing wads of cash down the headphone money pit, a belated "Sorry about your wallet" to you!

Robinje,

Welcome to headfi. I only joined this year myself and I find it an amusing place to hang out, as well as being a great place for comment, information and views on headfi gear - and lots more.

I hope you enjoy it here.

Keep in mind that I have no other CD players which to compare (iPod is my only other source), but I really like my Tivoli Model CD. It sounds great and has been reliable. It's got a built in variable heaphone output and gold plated RCA outputs (which I prefer for connecting to my headphone amp). The cherry cabinet looks cool in a sort of retro/furniture way. The plastic front and rear panels are okay with me. Overall, it's really a very basic unit but performs well for me.

CHEERS!


Jim

Cool, how do CD-Rs work with it? During the beginning of production, I heard that there were problems with the Tivoli CDP not reading them. I'm pretty sure the problems would've been fixed by now, but just looking for a confirmation.

For a lurker, you sure have a lot of stuff.
I hope your wallet doesn't go through much more pain.

I've got no experience trying CD-Rs in my Tivoli Model CD, so I can't confirm if it will play them or not. I will try to do so ASAP.
