Seems odd that Marantz and Denon (partner companies), seem to have exchanged the mantels of making great vs average hi-fi and home cinema, doesn't it? Hmmm, not that I'm a cynic when it comes to marketing tactics or anything... Anyway, I'm curious how the reviewers rate the stereo CD output of the £300 Marantz DV6001 in the latest issue against the two current standalone players, the £170 CD5001 (including the CD5001 OSE if anybody has heard one), and the £270 CD 6002. (I've included the RRP's as much for my benefit when I come back to this post as for anything else). Whaddya think?
