Other than the inclusion of the D.O.A.M.Q.A. this looks nice. I am interested in some thing cost a bit less but still possessed of your company's excellent build quality and superb looks. I am thinking about the Shanling Temp eC1B CD Player. Could you please provide me with any information on it? If it is no longer made, please pardon the intrustion. Thank you!
