Best sounding CD Player for $3K or less used?
I see the ARCAM FMJ CD36 mentioned. I have seen other posts here claiming that the CD36 is no better than the CD23T. One of those can be obtained here for about $800. 
McIntosh - is it that great?
I have an Audio Research VT-100 Mk II, but I have toyed with the idea of selling it and getting a McIntosh MC275. Has anybody compared the two amps? I would be interested in hearing people's opinions about how these two amps would compare sonicall... 
4 ohms or 8 ohms
I've been told by "Chris" at ARC that the 8 ohm taps sound better on ARC VT amps. If you are concerned about the speaker impedance being too low, try raising it by using the Paul Speltz Zero auto-former.

Should I replace my LP12?
I agree with Stringmun1. I bought mine in 1977. In 2002 I did the Lingo-II, Trampolin upgrade and I had my local dealer replace the springs and adjust the suspension. I've been listening happily ever since. The Lingo made a HUGE difference. DON'T ... 
What is the difference between LS & PS

What amp with Innersound Eros ?
Thanks for all your responses. I am currently using an ARC VT100 MkII. I am not using a preamp, but rather the volume control on the crossover-amp. I do not like a bright sound, so I'm not sure the Innersound amp would work for me. Anybody tried t... 
Upsampling the way to go? ?
Is it true that the Audio Note has no filtering ??This could not be good for amplifiers and tweeters.I thought it was a requirement that the aliasing frequencies must be filtered out of the analog output.Can anyone comment on this? 
Best CD Player under 2k ?
Thanks for your input, Matt413575. The rest of my system is ARC LS-15 preamp, ARC VT100 Mk-II. My speakers are currently IMF Monitor Mk III (25 yrs old), but I will be replaceing them soon. My "short list" for speakers is: Triangle Celius, Living ...
