I traded my brand spankin' new Rega Apollo back in the day for a used Jolida and some change. Until I bought my recent Marantz big boy SACD player, the Jolida did me justice and I preferred that over the Apollo.
What I didn't like about it was the "forward" sound. Everything got pushed up right in front of your face. Drove me 'knuckin' futz. The Jolida pulled back quite a bit and presented a really good depth perception as a result. I will say this, I never once had ANY disc skip on the Apollo the whole time I had it.
The one thing I liked at the time about was the top loading tray.....that is, right up until I had to add a piece of gear underneath it due to no more room on the rack. That presented an issue due to the amount of verticle real estate it needed to load and unload a CD.
