I owned the DV-50, and once borrowed the CD3 MKII from a local dealer. I honestly prefered the DV-50. The MKII thorws a wider stage, and sounds more at ease with bigger images and more pronounced, but the sence I got is that it sacrifices resolution a bit to do it. It reminded me of an old CEC plyaer I use to have, very smooth, but lacking in the same detail that the DV-50 provides you. The DV-50 also seemed more dynamic. I just thought the DV-50 was more fun to listen too. Perhaps it was system mismatch, but I dont think so. I am sure that their are those that would prefer the MKII to the DV-50...just not me. I hope that helps.
