It's crazy to pay that much for an outdated CDP. You could grab a used Jolida for that money and get much better sound.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Get a decent modern CD changer or player and a tube buffer. That's all a 390/490t is anyway, and it uses old 1-bit DACs.
It should sound like it isn't there!

That's also why I got a 390t to go with my 490t. Of course, my deal was just done recently.

I'm sure it's a great player, it's the seller that scares me. Read through his feedback AND the feedback he's left for others. =;
