    Yes," Harbeth lover" in the making. My son is now learning to play acoustic guitar. Now, he has 2 of them. He said, dad please don't sell the SHL5. I will buy it from you when I'm already working. He is now only 18 yrs young and still schooling.

    I use a Marantz CD16 (the other components are Dynaco Pas3x and Dynaco ST70 II) with my compact 7 ES2. The sound (for me) seems analog with many details.

    Hi Yamakozan, may I know if you have owned Naim amps before since you have the CDX2? Do you still have the CDX2? Reason of asking is I am looking at this player. Naim CD players need to match Naim amps to have the full Naim effect.

    Hi Ryder,

    I respectfully disagree with your above statement. Sold my Naim amp and now using Exposure with Naim CDS2.

    Best regards

    Hi Sunshine,

    If you hadn't noticed, I didn't say Naim CD players don't sound good with other amps. May I ask which model of Naim amp that has been replaced with the Exposure, and which Exposure are you using right now?

    A lovely old (but in perfect!) Meridan 500 Mk II Transport running into a Naim DAC. To complete the picture, the DAC runs into a DNM 3C Six pre amp and DNM PA2B monoblocs into my P3ESRs...wonderful in every way!

    I'm using a Cambridge Azur 840C. I really appreciate it. A great cost/quality value.

    Arcam Alpha (original type, about 20 years old), with a few component substitutions & improved power rail decoupling on the DAC board. There are plenty of better CD players, but maybe not for around 30.

    That post brought a smile to my face! My first ‘proper’ CD player was an Arcam Alpha 1. Their amps were excellent value. It was royally shown up by the Linn turntable I had at the time, but was a fraction of the cost and held its own considering s! I bought a Linn Ikemi after the Arcam which was very nice indeed. This can be purchased used for very little nowadays . In fact, the performance jump between the Ikemi and the machine which replaced it, the Linn Unidisk 1.1, certainly didn’t justify the massive difference in price, in retrospect.
