Strength:

Soudstage, Midrange, Bass, Analog sound, Just so smooth!

Weakness:

NONE! Maybe some would not like the upside down cd loading??

All I can say is if you can find one...buy it! What I cannot
believe it how there are not many reviews of this excellent
piece.
It has the smoothest highs & midrange I have heard along
with great bass, as witnessed with my Arcam FMJ side by
side. The Arcam is also a fantastic cd player (previous fav)

I was told it was the closest thing to analog sound and it's
true.
If you can find one one the used market, pick it up!
Dianna Krall in your living room front and center with
all the tiny details emininating from all around her, will
melt you where you sit. :o)

Rest of system:

2 Aragon 4004 MK II (Bi-Amped)

Excellent player. Killed other brands with the same price easily. It is as good as excellent player such as Theta, Krell, even pricier brand.
Soundstage is huge, extreemly detailed, focus, ahhh.... it just sounded so good in my ear I wouldn't want to try other brands.
I matched it with :
Jolida 302A (cheap but one of the best value amp in audio world)
Cary CD-300
Theta ProBasic II -upgraded
JPS Labs supercondutor speaker cables and interconnects
JMLab System 12 speakers (Cheap and good enough to my ear although there are tons of better speakers)

12 stars
