Had a CD6000KI. Never heard the bog-standard CD6000, or CD6000 OSE orCD6000 OSE LE or Heart CD6000... Paid Â£375 sold it for Â£275. So can't really complain about its resale value.
Not a bad machine at all. Very well built for the money. Not bad resolutionandquite refined. Surprised by its weight (which while not the final arbiter of quality still adds some reassurance) when I first removed it from the box.
Well whilst browsing Fleabay I stuck a bid on a Marantz cd17 mkII and won. Â£276 . There was also a KI signature version but following advice (Biscuit) only amps have a real improvement in sound quality , and dude with twated 63 said he would give me Â£300 for my Arcam.
What cdp is the better of the two , honest opinions please.
I take it the 16 bit versions used the Philips TDA1541A DAC, which i had in my lightly modded Arcam Alpha. Sounded pretty good. Not far behind a Cyrus CD8x. Not sure about the later KI sigs but i reckon they will be quite smooth sounding.
hi i like the tda1541 chip it sound nice smooth the arcam if you still have it will benifit from a trichord clock and other mods what have you done so far ? i can turn a cd 63 ki into a giant killer your talking a Â£2500+ cd player, musical fidelitys cd players modified are world class beaters
