Meridian G08 an upgrade from FMJ-33?


Considering "upgrading" from an Arcam FMJ-33 to a Meridian G08. Any thoughts?

I think they're both very fine players, I have the earlier FMJ23 and have listened to the G series in my dealer. I don't think this would be a very cost effective upgrade in terms of sound quality and you'd be better off spending your money elsewhere. I think Arcam's build quality is 2nd to none whereas the Meridian stuff has a few teething problems and seems to show its age quicker.
