Anybody familiar with this player?

Hi all, just seen this unit called the Onix XCD-88 cd player and it looks an awfull lot like the Music Hall MMF CD-25. In fact, it's based on the same Shanling design as the CD-25. Check it out:
Same Burr-Brown 1732 24-bit/96kHz DAC
Same HDCD decoding chip
Same Philips CDM-12.1 transport controlled by a CD-7mkII servo
Same The OPA 2134 op amps are used for the output stage and low pass filtering
Same Thick brushed-aluminum front plate and solid chassis
Different price tag. Music Hall is $600.00. This one is $399.00. Link below to the site selling it, specs etc. Could be the best deal in digital players as I write this. Anyone got any experience with this unit?

From what I can tell, aside from the display, it virtually is a CD 25...

The product description is virtually identical on the Music Hall page.

Unregistered guest a mere $299.00 it would be a STEAL, no? $100.00 off if your a member of Home Theatre Talk.

If it is indeed a CD-25 with a different display and name on the faceplate, it is indeed, a steal at $299. Even at $399, it would represent quite a value.
