Default Buying from Steinmusic

I'm thinking about buying a CDM12.1 from Stein Music, but i'm a bit skeptical. Is it safe to purchase with a credit card? Anyone have bad experiences? How fast is shipping?
Any feedback is welcome.

I bought one of his players. Picked it up myself. Experienced some trouble with connecting the powersupply. Well what can I say... Holger Stein responds usually very quick to my e-mails. Fried my display anyway So my player is now back to Holger for repairs. CDM 12 sounds great. Actually it sounds better than my upgraded Marantz cd-80.

Now that is hard to believe for me. There must have gone something wrong while modding the CD80.

The CD-80 sounds better after te mod (opa627 and faster rectifier diodes) But on my set (Pass Aleph 5, Thel preamp and Alcone AC8HE with Dynaudio D-260 in a 75 liter enclosure) the CDM 12 sounds very good. I mean really very good! I payed about 910 Euro for the CD-80 12 years ago. I payed 189 euro for the CDM 12 last year. Comparing price/prestation the CDM 12 is a great CD player. Of course there are differences, but they are small. I also bought the upgrade for the CDM 12. Since the CDM 12 sounds so good, the upgrade must bring even more.
