I would also add the AMR CD 77.1 to the mix. The latest players with the mods that Darren does are amazing sounding with a very liquid midrange and a huge soundstage and the build quality is outstanding.
I have heard all the DCS products and they are nothing like vinyl! The DCS does extract alot of detail and has good air but they tend to be very dry sounding in the midrange.
The AMR the Zanden and the ARC are all very full bodied sounding.
