CA Azur 840 CD player - £249 from Richer. A no-brainer?
I'm looking to upgrade my NAD 515BEE and ran across what looks like the hot deal of the century at Richer Sounds -- a CA Azur 840 CD player for £249.00. This was tested a while back by What Hi -Fi at an indicative RRP of £750.00! The only slight drawback is that it's only available from their Central London branch (a mere 400 miles round trip from Liverpool).
Surely this would be worth, at the very least, an audition. Has anyone come across the CA 840 before? Presumably, at that price point it would blow away the budget opposition. Would it be worth the trip for me to go and demo?
