Is this still available, or are they scavenging old CDPs?

That is just drop-dead gorgeous!!! Too bad they made it to just play old 78 RPM slate records.

When SACD and competing formats finally settle down, I'd like to buy whatever the accepted new hi-res format is and I want the player to look like this!

I suppose it would make a nice transport
I wasn't very impressed with the original Shanling player, again it looked nice but my Modded Arcam trounced it for sound quality

Yes Leon, and one more thing: people that listened to it say that the sound was better through the SS output (OPA2604) than through the tube output.

Well it got trounced using both SS and tube output.
After the guy in the shop laughed at the sight of my old Arcam the smirk was soon wiped off his face when he heard it
He knew he wasn't getting a sale that day

Ahh, the ELO machine. Lets hope the playback chain on this model is a little shorter than usual.

Of course we don't get fooled by looks.
I love the TDA1541A, and your Arcam has one of these.
