Currently using my udp205 as a cdp. Im Looking for a Stand alone cd player of equivalent sound quality. Or close I was considering the Cambridge 851 c azur. Has anyone used this unit. Or can you recommend something

    North Star Blue Diamond CD Player. I've got a demo unit and looking to move it. The Azur stuff is nice but the Blue Diamond is going to be better.
  • Hi. I’m not to familiar w blue diamond. So the demo is from where? What are you looking to get for it ? Ben
  • Most likely Skip's demo unit since it's a brand he carries. I haven't heard that specific CD player, but the North Star DAC's I've heard have all sounded solid and scaled well with various set ups. I'd imagine the CD player would hold up just as well.
