The Fidelity is smooth, warm, and detailed. I haven't heard the Planet. It should be good. It's predecessor is a classic. My vote is for the Jolida.

Funny you sould pose this question. I recently bought a JD 100 and swapped out the tubes for Electro Harmonix, and damped the chassis. I needed a second player for my office, so I bought the Planet 2000. After an A/B the Jolida took the cake for a slightly more detailed, open sound. I sold the Rega the next day. The rega is a great player and actually has a very nice, thick chassis, except the front and rear covers are plastic...go figure..the top loader is slick, but the Jolida sounded better to my ears...I have never heard the Fidelity....
I assume you are referring to the A3 CD player.I am a long time proponent of the company ,having owned 5 different MF products.I believe they offer a well built ,excellent line of amps and cd players.That said-I was underwhelmed by the A3 CD.It seemed to truncate the high frequencies in my experience.Not trying to start a debate-just an opinion.
