I was on the point of getting out the credit card for an Ayre CX-7 when I came across a posting that suggested it might a good idea to audition the Bel Canto CD-2 before making the decision. A local dealer has the Bel Canto, and also has an ex-dem GamuT CD3 at a price I could just about afford. Anyone have an opinion on either of these? The exposed transport of the Bel Canto seems a slightly weird idea to me, but maybe there are advantages in being able to get to the lens?
