Siddh, there is an Accuphase lc offered here at Audiogon, which is probably the equal of the Burmester, though I have never had the chance to compare the two. I've listended to Burmester's latest preamp and CD-combo once, however not under any controlled settings. Speakers were A-capella horns. The amps, don't recall. Maybe Burmester, mabe Gryphon References. The sound was amazingly neutral and highly resolved through the entire spectrum, the soundstage terrific, but the rendering a bit sterile, uninvolving. Possibly the units were not broken in yet, perhaps it was the wires, cannot say. It was at a dealer's on a trip to Deutschland.
