    Is this the ex Testure unit or a different one? Lovely bit of kit although dare I say it, I like the SA-1 and SA-7 even more.

    As a proud owner of an SA 7 I can confirm they are truly awesome and a future classic in the same as the CD 7 is a classic now.

    Would I notice a large enough improvement over my Marantz SA-11, considering the large price difference of the SA-7?

    Carefull with the CD7. There are parts that cannot be replaced due to no spares being made. If they break the player will become an expensive ornament. A good friend found this out last year.

    Marantz UK almost certainly don't but Marantz Germany claimed they hada full set of bits as late as May last year (when I last spoke to them). The Germans are good like that.

    Thanks v much for that Tons. I'll let my mate know. He'll be pleased, it's got an intermittant fault at the mo and the repairers said when it finally gives up the ghost they can't fix it any more.

    I always bought something that full with slam, fast pace and big on bass. Now I own 3 pieces that you can't say each one would be my sort of gears, but together they really rock my world.

    I wouldn't be swapping again in a hurry!

    Yup. And Penance is going to be celibate.
    I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Nice one! I remember reading the reviewsin HFC/HFW/HFN. A KI designed "tour de force" using state of the art technology . Veritably the ingredients for a "classic".

    Do you think that if I scrubbed the "1" from my CD17 people might believe it was a CD7?
    I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left..............pure genius

    Thanks guys for being please for me, I suppose after all that swapping I deserve a "privilege" to own system.

    A system review will be write up very soon.

    Tel, I think experiments on cables swapping first before I enter the land of unknown (tubes ) In few months time I will have enough snake oil in the kitchen that I might have to think of new dish on the menu!

    Now, did you say your Kondo are for sale?
