The differences between the better "mega-buck" players and the Cambridge 840C are really quite small in most respects. Some may be preferred for a particular characteristic or handle SACD or DVD-A, but the Cambridge presentation is simply detailed and neutral with CD. The recording sets the quality level, just as it should be. Tizz, boom, "velvety" midrange and the like are departures from accuracy and always wear thin over time. If looking for coloration, search elsewhere.
