Although I found it of limited use, there is a review in the current Stereophile magazine. This featured review does little comparison with the competition - mostly it focuses on a $32K DCS rig (pointless) and MF's own redbook player. How it fares against the Asian or European players (Sony, Shanling, Phillips, ...) is not addressed. My experience with this rag leads me to suspect that this is a calculated omission. Stereophile has tested all these players, so why no comparison? Probably because they're as good (or better) at half the price or less, and given the amount of advertising space MF has been buying, this just wont do. So, what's a poor consumer to do? My advice, as always, is to do your own comparison with your own ears, and vote with your wallet. And please, share your experiences with the forum.
