I have owned three Accuphase cdp's: DP-65, DP-75 and now the DP-75V. I have used two linestages (Presence Deluxe Linestage, Jeff Rowland Synergy II with optional battery power supply) and in each case I have found that the players sounded better running straight into the power amplifier. Caveats are that these players are not internally balanced and therefore will sound better through the single ended outputs (providing that you are not using a power amp that is fully balanced in which case you will need to consider the pin configuration of the balanced outputs/inputs). You also need to be mindful of any potential impedence mismatching between the Accuphase and the power amplifier.
