I recently had the opportunity to take my Jupiter 2000 to my local Hi-Fi dealer to demo these 2 players side by side. We used the same equipment for both players, just unpluged one player , and pluged in the other. I listened to the same CD through both, listening to the Arcam CD33T first, then the Jupiter. It only took a few seconds of the first song, to hear the Jupiter sounded MUCH better. The Jupiter had better over all toneality, and was much more "in time". The Jupiter also had better bass, and was just plain more musical. IMHO, The Rega Jupiter 2000 is way under rated. It is truley a giant killer. You could find one hear on Audiogon for about $1000, and its worth every cent!
