The answer to your first question is "yes" in my opinion. The CAL Icon Mk II is a fine CDP. Warm and musical w/a strong bass presentation, although not so tight. The hand-trimmed DAC's are what make this player very fine. At the moment one of my CDP's is an older high-end (1986) NEC which sounds great. Haven't heard the Cambridge for an extended length of time, so unable to comment. Good Luck on your path to sonic bliss!
