Thanks for the insights. I was guessing that the BAT CD player would be a step up, but was wondering if it would really be only a slight step up. You've confirmed my thoughts exactly. maybe I'll pick up a transporter & server instead, as it will help manage way too many CDs!
Not many folks know or remember the Canton CT 2000's, but friends with far more pricey separates and speakers are always commenting on them saying how sweet they are. I always get the; "if you ever want to sell these, let me know 'cause I'll buy 'em".
i think u have to 'listen' the bat vk-d5SE to conclude!
but pls only run it in balanced XLR and be pleasantly suprised!
i did a ABC comparision and it beats NAIM CDX2, MARANTZ 11-S1 in terms of realistic presentation of the PRAT.
Only complaint is the seemingly flimsy CD tray and the lable on the parts inside ; MADE IN CHINA / INDIA - which u could see from the top of the grilllies.
but hey, what is not - in some parts/way or another made elsewhere but assembled in anothe place...
