Feedback on Doge 6 CD Player?

I am considering purchasing the Doge 6 CD player by the end of the year. I have seen some older posts about the player but those are from 2008/2009 and there is nothing more recent. If there is anyone with any experience with the Doge player, I would greatly appreciate your input. Any feedback from people who have heard it, and can offer comparisons with other sub$2k players, tube or otherwise, would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any feedback or helpful suggestions.

Unlike most people here, I will not give you an opinion on gear I've never owned. In my system, I found the Doge6 far superior to the 5400 in the areas that matter to me. The Doge is well-built and the transport is a standard plastic CD transport found in many, many players, including the Ear Acute and the Ayre. They don't look like much, but they do last. Look, you seem like a serious person and I appreciate you wanting to know you're doing the right thing, but nobody could possibly A/B all the players you have listed there. The Doge is good, the Sony is good. I have a $189 Oppo that's good too. The Doge gives you 30 day money back and US support. Try that with your used Electrocompaniet. You're buying a CD player. It's not going to last a lifetime, unless you're very old. Stop anguishing over this and buy something.
HAHA! Point taken. The truth is that I really want the Doge, and was hoping somebody would say something that would talk me out of it. You've failed miserably at that. Thanks, Chayro! I really do appreciate it.
just re hooked up my Doge 6 ( re tubed with vintage mullards) really is close to the equal to my mucho expensive Esoteric CDP.....absolutely no mechanical problems with it.
Thank you all, for your feedback and your time. I've decided against any new CD player at this time and will just go ahead and buy a new DAC. Ultimately, I had to be honest with myself about my real listening habits and probably only 10% of my listening is CD based, the bulk of it being computer/vinyl. Given the overall cost of my system, I think spending $1700 for a CD-only player would be a mistake for me right now, especially given the fact that a DAC upgrade is long overdue and more worthwhile for my actual listening preferences. Despite the fact that I enjoy reading Audiogon forums, I tend not to post much. It was nice to see firsthand how helpful the forums could be in providing useful feedback and helping me to work through my own process in reaching a decision. Thanks, guys.
