Having just received - and returned - a NAD 516BEE CD player within a week for a 'clicking' fault that affected both old and new discs alike, I'm still short of a dedicated CD player. At present, discs are played via a Sony BDP and Musical Fidelity V-90II DAC, but this isn't practical, as I need the telly on to see which tracks I'm flicking through.
I have an Exposure 1010 amp and am tempted to raise my budget and go with the Exposure 1010 CD player. It has received good reviews. Does anyone here have experience of this player?
The other option is the Marantz CD6005, which has also reviewed well.
My worry is reliability. I know Exposure do QC in the UK and are built in Malaysia? How do Marantz users find the 6005?
I really don't want to have to send another one back.
Also, I believe the 1010 uses a TI PCM1716 DAC chip (24-bit/96hz) whereas the Marantz's is 24/192. Will this make a difference?
Thanks for your help.
