Review: Acurus ACD-11 CD Player
This is a workhorse CD player that I have owned for a number of years now. I like the Mondial stuff (before they were sold to Klipsch recently) and would buy anything made by them. The sound of this player is totally honest and revealing for an older design. I would be interested in trying the unit with an outboard DAC but do not have the budget to do it yet. It excels with any type of music. It replaced a Rotel RCD-845 player. I have tested it using the Pierre Verany CD test disc and it performs better than most players in the category. If cost were no object I woudl probably own the Electrocompaniet EMC-1 player but for the difference in price I am quite pleased.
Overall, highly recommended.
