Owners of Cary 308,308T, Arcam FMJ 33 or Ayre CX-7
Mattkimb96: Thanks for your thoughts and input. I am still undecided, but the Arcam is loooking like a GREAT contender. I am now thinking that price point is going to be a major consideration and a used Arcam or Cary will be the least expensive wa...

Lkdog: Can you give me anymore info on the TRL 595? A website, price?Reubent: I read up on the Quad, but not sure if this piece will suit me. I don't think I need all of the digital inputs and not even sure what this pieces built in variable volum...

Jman66: That is whay I placed these CD players in the short list I have for myself. I really don't want to add any more pieces into the "mix". I also need to keep the price low. (so It looks like the Ayre will need to be purchased used)

Boy, am I bummed.

A 308 cr will sound better than A3.2

A 308 cr will sound better than A3.2
Krell man: I took your advice and sold my MF A3.2 integrated and bought an MF A308cr amp and a tube preamp. I'm very happy I did! Sounds great and looks great. Check out my rig under the virtual systems "budget minded" under Yarvis' rig. Thanks ag... 
Inverting and or non inverting amp?
Thanks guys for all of the responses. I have a test disc from my car audio days and I can now hear the difference with a track specifically used to judge relative polarity and phasing in and out. 
Inverting and or non inverting amp?
Cytocycle: Good eye and good advice. I have a tube based preamp (Rogue 99) and just found out that I should have flipped speaker polarity at the speaker ends. (doh!!) Have to be totally honest though, it doesn't sound MUCH different than before. I... 
modify CD25 or buy new CDP...
I happen to own a heavily modified CD 25 that I bought from Underwood Hifi. While not cheap,($870) It is still a lot less expensive than the Arcam or Cary 308t. I listened to an unmodified CD 25 and before I bought my unit,I had the NAD 541i that ...
