Hello, I dont have the set up you have but, my favorite is the AMR CD77(latest version). The Marantz SA-7S1 and the Playback Designs MPS-5(pricey). Your Cary is pretty good and so is the AA. This is the deal, I like both tube and solid state. It should'nt really matter, its all about the music. A well designed product, should get close to the music. Dont get pulled in the wrong direction and forget about the music. One more good player, the EAR Acute. Take care, All the best.
I bought the Capitole shortly after purchasing the Filarmonia. The Capitole replaced the Accustic Arts transport which replaced the Audiomeca transport. I prefer the Capitole over the others, but this too is in the process of being sold. I'm tired of top loaders. By the way I no longer own the Filarmonia either, but I still have the Merlins and I'm waiting for the new BAM.
