Shocker - CAL CL 15 vs Marantz KI Pearl SACD
It is a fairly newer unit. That is for sure. The break in period is definitely not even close to complete. I was very suprised. The CAL is more liquid in my opinion. Maybe I will listen to the unit after it has been broken in. It is very new in al... 
Review: Merlin Music Systems TSM-MME Monitor
I would hang on to the CL-15. I just auditioned the new marantz sacd player and the CAL blew it away completely. You will have a hard time finding a cd player that sounds as good as the CAL. I am serious. Try it for yourself 
Suggestions for a cd player/transport

I disagree with the discussion regarding V1. I was using the stock Mcintosh tube in this location. I was told that you did not even have to use a tube here if you were using XLR. WRONG! My amp would not even play in one of the channels without a t...

Amp for B&W Sig 805
I have an Audio Research 100.2 and the LS 16 and they sound great with the 805's I do not know if they still make the 100.2 but it sounds great. I would highly recommend it. B & W's seem to like solid state.
