Sometimes i wish i didn't listen to others, i remember getting a Marantz Ken Ishy...603 i think,
also read brilliant things about the Philips DVD 936sa in HiFi+ (product of the year),
what a disappointment it was compared to what i had. :doh:

You have to pick the right people to listen to. The world is full of false prophets.

Or better learn for yourself. Pick something on ebay that is cheap and off the radar, try it, you never know, it is fun.
