Bottom Line:   
A real audiophile cd player in the truest sense of the word. No other cd player I have owned has made digital music sound so real, so weighty so detailed and smooth. I would not hesitate to recommend it anyone seeking a long term piece of gear that let's you see and hear deeper into the music. It is added value because it makes even my oldest CD's from the late 80's sound good.

Bottom Line:   
unike sound.
Very precise in timming. (you can hear that is because of the built in DAC)
And good overall structure.

It´s one of the better choices for the asking price.

But this thing can only replace things that cost less than about 1-2000 dollars.

I don´t like that the sound is soo overly cold and scandinavian in a very clinical mp3 upsampled way.
It is a tiny bit to bright and harsh and is totally 2 dimensional.

It is in other words totally digital in sound, and does therefore seem slightly depressing if you listen to it alot.

It´s a steal for around a 1000 dollars, but for around 2000 you could still get a lot better player like for example quad and rega saturn.

I find that most people that choose this player simply are accountants or lawyers or not very nerdy people who don´t understand audio, but believes that everything sound better in a digital way :-)
(that is of cause just my oppinion)
