    I went over to Petes place yesterday to pick up an Arcam A5 he has modded for me....

    It works for me.......going straight through (petes) pre, naim 140, ruarks (by-passing the deq and buffer)......... this player soundstages like b*****y and detail to match.......

    If your looking for a decent player (for not mega bucks) I reckon this should be on you short list.

    More a matter of taste than a 'must', I think...

    Can't say the 1541 nos does it for me ...but 1543 sounds very good as nos.
