System Goals/Comments: Easy to listen to with very good detail but can rock when it has to.
System Strengths: Good detail & articulation, good soundstaging, cohesive and involving, balanced.
System Weaknesses: Previous CD-Player, Arcam FMJ CD36 lacked a bit of high-end sparkle. The Cambridge Audio 840C corrected that. The Keilidhs are not the last word in detail.

Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation: bass guitar, cycling, drums, digital home studio
