OK, all you Prima-Donnas ... hehe
Have you had a chance to compare the Prima with big brother Capitole, Resolution Audio Opus 21 or Electrocompaniet EMC-1UP??
The new Chinese players (Consonance, Xindak, etc.) are quite feature-filled for the price, but I really haven't heard any dependable, direct comparisons to the established European or American players. I understand that the Xindak players use alot of the same hardware as the ES Sony's (DAC's, transports), and has been sub-contractors for the manufacture of players for other marques.
I understand this $1500-3500.00 range is just filled with hot players, used & new, tube & SS, but I am also trying to decide which new player is worth shelling out this kind of Jack for, and don't have anywhere local to listen to them.
