...this is my first response or comment, ever to this forum...
I have three systems in house, two of which have Cary products which handle the digital end:
A 306/200 CD Player
A DMS-500 DAC/Network player
I am not inclined to part ways with them, only upgrade...to better Cary units in their respective processes, a 306 SACD (or Pro), which is hard to find, and the new DMS 700, which I will continue to save for.
Whichever I get first the "old" will be moved to that system, which presently has the Sony HAP Z1ES, which I am inclined to retain as well.
The sound relayed by the Cary units is, fantastic, and their interface to operation is straightforward and easy. I am relatively surprised at the lack of following/mention within various postings on Audiogon, but that's ok...it seems I am not that alone in the love of Cary products designed to continue to entertain our quest for better sound in our systems, further supported by people's unwillingness to also give them up.
Thank you for listening...
