My Denon CDP got suddenly worse and I took it out of service. I think I mentioned it on AK, and another member let me know that Eric might have one for me. Well he did, and after a bout of flu, he gifted it to me a couple of days ago: a Marantz DV9500! Awesome! I took in home in the trunk of Sven the Volvo and let it warm up overnight. Next day, I knew within seconds that it outclassed the Denon, and not by just a little bit. THANK YOU, ERIC!!!
