Bottom Line:   
A rather unknown French CD-player, costing around $1000. Sitting in a neat,sober black housing with a minimum of controls, all flush-mounted with the
actual aluminium front. Inside we find a standard Japanese CD-player of which
many components have been removed. Power supplies are extensive, and seperated
for transport, analogue and digital after the transformer. A custom PCB
holds a BB DF1700P digital filter and two PCM61P 18-bit DACs. Analog filtering
is with a GIC-circuit, built using 4 TL-071s per channel.

The Meije sounds very spacey and open, while treble is sweet and detailed.
It lacks the bold surefootedness and dynamics of the Rega Planet, being less
positive and indeed a bit inconsistent over the whole spectrum. A very good
player, but the Rega is still quite a bit better!
