Hi all,
I'm a newbie here and to hi-end audio in general. Currently my humble setup is a NAD 325BEE amp with Wharefedale Diamond 9.1. I've come across these two used CD players which review on the net rave about.
From what I could tell the CAL with the HDCD boss upgrade should be superior to the Marantz but it is older and the company is out of business. They both cost about the same (~$250).
Any idea which of these players would fit my setup better? Isn't a CAL Icon Mk2 with the upgrade a bargain for $250?

I'd appreciate any input..!

Yes that is a bargain - I would choose CAL over Marantz.

You are lucky to find it !

Get it before it's gone.

The old Marantz was a classic in it's day though...I used to have that one.
