Three? That's outrageous. Don't you only need two for stereo?

I bought mine just over 3 weeks ago. Played flawlessly without a hic-cup. The sound is unbelievable for the price I agree.
Ill likely regret that I just sold it only to raise cash. I will likely have to spend much more to find its sonic equal I suppect. But, in the short time I had it...no issues.
I owned one shortly but sold it recently. It has a marvelous sound, just not quite up to my Audio Aero Capitole but for $1k vs $5K I wouldn't expect it to. I had absolutely no problems whatsoever with glitches reading problems etc or any operational issues of any kind. By the way my T-7's are out with Stuart getting new woofers and mid range drivers so they should sound magnificant when I finally get them.
Viridian, Yes, with the mono version you have to buy two. Better resolution, but it's a real bear to try and get the two players for L/R chanel in sync when you listen.
Kehut, you bought and sold it within three weeks? Man, you just got enough of a fix to have serious withdrawal now.
I think many of the dealers aren't aware of such problems, since they might just put discs on play and let them run. It's us real world obsessive convulsive listeners who are using the functions all the time!
Anyone else? Unit working flawlessly or no?
The dealer is superb; I have an appointment on Sat. to bring the unit in and meet with the technitian to see what's going on with it.
Love the music this player makes, but yes...having some of the same problems that Doug is having with his. A replacement is on it's way to me. Still have my original one and will compare the two. Hopefully the new one will have the problems worked out. Mostly just quirky stuff, but aggravating nonetheless.
I haven't had any problems with mine but I haven't used it a whole lot. I did notice you kind of have to wait until functions are finished before going on to the next one. It's not instantaneous. At first I thought it was hanging up but it just takes its own sweet time a lot of times. And it says in the manual it'll wait until each function is finished before going on to the next.
I am on my second one. The first one worked fine the first night of playing(about four hours). The next morning it starting acting up. It would just stop playing and it also had the same problem with the foward button. It would average 2-4 stopings a day. My replacement arrived yesterday and so far so good with 3 hours of playing last night and 2 hours of playing this morning. This thing sounds really good!!! I just hope it lasts.
Have had it 2 weeks. Will stop playing for 10-15 seconds, then continues. Display goes to zero then back to accurate count. Have replayed tracks with no problem. Replaced a Planet 2000, Apollo sounds much better. Prefer the new locking chuck CD fits on, Planet 2000 could be noisy if CD center not cut correctly. Watching for a recall from Rega.
