Rega apollo v NAD 565 BEE comparsion Others?
Depends on the system. I happen to dig the Rega but in your system it could be different. As you can see by the reponses there is no consensus on this price point. Others would have to include the Rotel RCD-1520. I dynamite player for $1,000.

Can a Rotel RA-1520 power B&W's 804s'

Naim with..........
Nope. Never heard that combo. 
Naim UnitiQute - who's heard one?
