I have been using the MMF CD 25 for about a month now and I am very pleased with my purchase. I listen to mostly acoustic; popular vocals; and jazz music. I find that the player picks up every last detail, for example I will hear a tambourine or guitar strum that I had not noticed before. On vocals, the player is very precise. On one Elvis song in particular (Kentucky Rain), I can hear clearly the echo of the recording studio and the accompanying stillness of the air. On 1950's vintage Louis Armstrong (W.C. Handy & Fats Waller), the sound is smooth, not harsh (though not as good as the SACD versions). I have the MMF paired with fairly musical sounding equipment (Acoustic Research 302; Harmon Kardon 3370) and am considering buying an additional player for my bedroom system. I purchased it over the net from Northern Audio & Home Theater for $539 (includes shipping & tax). Good service & quick.
