You might be shocked to hear how good the Sharp SD-EX111 all-in-one sounds. It is a CD player, tuner, pre-amp and 2-channel amplifier in one unit. The amplifiers are of the digital/switching type and sound very good.
This unit was designed with an MSRP of $499 in mind, but I think the Sharp name did not help it generate the credit it was due. These were closed out for under $100 last year and they sometimes show up on the used market for about $100-$150. They are well worth the price.
Redwine audio also performs mods on the Sharp that take it to another level. With the mods this all-in-one becomes a very good sounding unit.
Also there is a 18,000+ hit post about this unit over at www.Audiocircle.com . You also sometimes see one listed in the marketplace section of Audiocircle.
The Arcam is a great unit and the Linn is also. But given the price difference, I would always choose the Sharp. Heck, it might even sound better overall......
