I gave the Linn Unidisc a good listen at HE 2004 and was VERY impressed. I guess it depends what you want to do. I don't think ANY of the multi-format players will play CD as well as the BEST of the dedicated CD transports...so you will be making some compromises. I've chosen to spin my CD's on a Wadia 270se modified by Great Northern Sound...and am very glad I didn't move to a multiformat player. I'm spinning DVD-A/SACD on a DV-47a extensively modified by Dan Wright with Bybee devices in all 5 channels. I've never A/B'd it to the Unidisc of DV50, but my guess is that it would hold its own for a fraction of the cost. But that is pure speculation.
