Question Rotel RCD-991 vs. Cambridge Azur 640C v.2

Looking for som advice...
I am out for a new CD-player, and the choice today is between an old Rotel RCD-991 with an upgrader clock, an a brand new Cambridge Azur 640C v.2

Any sugestions too what would be the best choice ?

Regards
Lyra

Both are very good cd players. I have never used the Cambridge but i believe they are superb machines. The Rotel speaks for itself. If you do decide to go for the Cambridge, i amy be interested in the rotel (to go with my predominatly rotel system).

Do you have the opportunity to listen to both of them through the same system? That's the best way to tell and I mean for many hours.

To be able to do this I have to buy the Rotel, and then go to the shop and see if I can borrow a Cambridge (the latter would'nt be any problem I think), but I am a little sceptical just buying a 10 year old player just to test it.

If anyone have had the opportunity to test these players up against each other...please tell me.

Talking Dilemma solved

I have now bought me an used Cambridge Azur 640C v.2 and I really like it
The sound is marvelous dark and warm and I can hear things on my CD's I have never heard before.
Gonna use it as is for a while, but think i am gonna try Lampizator
on it. This might do it even better !?
