Just wanted to send a shout out to Mike (D1pp1n) and DanP. I bought an Adcom CD player from Mike and an Adcom GFA545ii power amp from Dan at the Menicus/CSS event in Grand Rapids. I finally got the chance to swap them in and out of my system and compare how they sound.
The Adcom CD player works prefectly, has a remote (huge bonus), and sounds cleaner and more natural than my Yamaha natural sound CD player. This is definitely my new CD player. Big thanks to Mike!
The Adcom power amp is a step up from my Rotel. It is super clean, absolutely no noise, and sounds so much more powerful and dynamic than the Rotel. Its' 100wpc sounds like a lot more compared to the Rotel's 60wpc. The Rotel sounds a bit more "warm". Not sure if that's good or bad. I'm gonna need to swap back and forth for a while to decide that. Anyway, the amp works perfectly. Big thanks to Dan!
