Bottom Line:   
Great audiophile class CD player especially at the price that I paid for it. Almost analog sounding comparable to my analog rig (Rega P3-2000 with Dynavector10x4mkII cart).

Bottom Line:   
This is a wonderful CD player by any account. I previously reviewed the NADS550 and the Classe .3 and this is head and shoulders better than both models. This player presents a very lifelike 3D performance that is virtually unmatched in the same price range. They are going for 2k now and that is a great bargain for such a good piece. Make sure that you match it with good cables or you will be selling yourself short. I used the Cardas Cross for interconnects and it doesn't disappoint. I am going to demo a Wadia 860 next to see if it really head and shoulders above this one. If you like solors (guitar or vocal) this player is a must! 5 stars

Bottom Line:   
I have been listening to music on audiophile systems for almost a decade, starting with single box CD players and progressing to DAC upgrades for the old CD player. I mainly listen to Jazz and Classical . This player is built like a tank. The transport section should please those with state of the art inclinations. This player has what it takes to convince you to hold out for the convergence of formats (ie DVD Audio, SACD) After paying almost half the original price I certainly cannot complain.

Bottom Line:   
The CDP 1.5 is a great CD player. However,transport/tracking problems are unacceptable, especially in a player retailing for $2,600! My local dealer has advised they've had to return four other units (plus my two). I like Classe amplifiers, but I really can't recommend their CD players because of transport/tracking defects.

Value Rating: 4 Stars for Sound/Price
Overall Rating: 1 Star for unacceptable mechanical performance
