Any budget marantz amp or CD player.   My motive 2's, although not cheap i was willing to spend more if required but they stood out on that demo day.

I'd agree wholeheartedly.  I think Denon and Marantz products are very hard to beat in terms of value for money/performance per pound.

Rega RP3/Elys2/TT PSU- Denon DCD720ae - Pioneer A400  -  Dynaudio DM2/6 - Atlas Equator 2.0 - Beyer DT-770PRO - Mission stands

Onkyo's network amps, esp the TX8050 and the stunning TX-NR818.  Comfortably blew the notion that "AV amps don't do music" out the water and into next week.

 

Do you think the TX-NR818 is also good VFM when used as dac in combination with a cd player?

No CD players? Wink

 

Mmmmm...  If pushed I'd say the Marantz CD6004 and Denon DCD720AE.  Above that the law of diminishing returns cuts in very quickly with CD players IMO.

 

Interesting statement with which i have to agree according to my latest experience with cd players. Wink
