Thanks for the info. All of you, but Rufier have different model. I believe there is a big difference. However, i had mine, "Gold 3 CE" just bought from Audioadvisor. I had my friend bring his Linn Majik in, and Mimik CD player. He, however have linn Tukan, i had chance to listen with my favorite CD's. Boy, was i dissapointed with Monitor audio. There is better lower freq. "rounder" "richer" sound, but where is DETAIL? According "What-HIFI" reviews Monitor Audio 3 is 5 star winner winner. "All-rounder, Fast, clean..." I found no evidence of that. Anybody else have any suggestions...? I would like to hear it, otherwise speakers are going to be shipped back...quickly! Thanks!
