Versatile

 

Very pleased with the versatility of this machine. It has many outlets to connect with any amplifier and can act as digital converter for other items in a system. The appearance of this well constructed CD player especially alongside the Arcam current...

Excelent sound via Optical Reciever input.

 

Very happy with it, my old DVD/ Blue ray player would not play some of my SACDs! This plays all, much better quality and especially bass and stereo/ 5:1 separation. Std. CDs sound great too.

Great sound but connectivity could be better

 

I compared this with a Marnatz CD player and the sound from the Arcam was richer and more detailed. However, the connectivity for streaming is not intuitive and the instructions limited.

That's it I am done with Richer Sounds

 

That is not in a bad way. Have been building my home theatre and hifi for 18 months now and it's done. Yahoo tell the bank. Last purchase the Arcam CDS50. Had been looking at its forerunner the 27 and using AV amp to stream. Now the CDS50 has its...
