New Budget Audionote CD Player

Recommended Posts

Anyone seen the Hifi Critic Review of the new Audionote CD player, the 6 and super duper five.....apparently it is £192,000.

Anyone read and seen what Martin Colloms thought and what score he gave it?

At such a reasonable cost I am thinking of ordering two with one for my 2nd system.

I know we all question the price of equipment, but ffs how do they come up with a price of £192k. I would love to see the costings to see how they arrived at the base cost that would justify the RRP.

Consider finance. I make that £2k per month @ 4.5% interest over 10years. A true bargin especially for a medium that probably wont exist by year five. :roll:

You might love to but you are not going to, maybe because it is none of your business.

Your opinion of course is your own business which I doubt AN are interested in.

On a personal level, hifi in this sort of price range is so far out of my league that it cannot impinge upon my life in any way, which is maybe why I don't think about it or worry about it.

I'm sure Notaclue will have one soon. That Zanden he's using costs less than $50,000.

I'll bet that even at £192k it will have cheap casework, the inside will look as though it was assembled by badgers and the ergonomics will resemble a Japanese car radio from the 80's ... :doh:
