And in this corner! Weighing in at �� Well you get the point! I�m fed up and I no longer feel like waiting out the format battle and like most people can�t get my hands on a Sony 777. In the price range of 1000$ or less It seems that the Rega Planet 2000 and the Njoe Tjoeb 4000 (which I have never listened to or know how pronounce for that matter) are forerunners. I have no Idea where to listen to the Njoe..and also am a bit weary for some reason of the hype I have read. Has anyone ever A/B these two units? When auditioning the Planet 2000 I was impressed. Any opinions�experiences? Of course this discussion does not have to be limited to these two units.
"New Tube" it is. Go to http://www.upscaleaudio.com/ for more information on this player. If I'm not mistaken Upscale Audio is the importer of Njoe Tjoeb. Sorry I can't comment on the sound as I have zero experience with either player.
I have no experience with the Rega but do with the Tjoeb. It is an exceptional value. It is the first sub $1500 player I have had in some time and it really does everything well. I have been very happy with it in a second system that is unforgiving of upstream components.
