My circa early 1990's has died and am considering repair or replacement, however do no wish to spend a lot of money at this time . Don't think spending more than $300 would makes sense as I could pick up a new NAD unit... but don't know if the sound quality would be comparable I am also considering the purchase of a bluesound vault 2 to replace the cd but also am not sure how that would sound. cd is currently running to adcom gfp 1a to canton karat 300's and velodyne uld 12.
