"So good I bought it twice!"
Originally had this in 2011 and sold it to upgrade to the CD-T100. Bad move. Although the CD-T100 looks the part, it doesn't have the sheer sonic abilities of the CD-T80. The CD-T100 was warm and flat compared. I instantly got that feeling of regret.
So, I stuck with the CD-T100 until I'd saved enough money to go for the five star rated Roksan Caspian M2. What a difference. Now that is a machine but I still missed the CD-T80 so bought another one!
Even at nearly 20 years old, the CD-T80 ab-so-lutely shines. The music just opens out and is not restrained in any way. Its ability to deliver sound in three dimensions is superb. Highly detailed and precise but never over analytical or tiresome to listen to, you enjoy the music, not the machine.
And yes, I still have it and no I'm not going to sell it. Ever! Go find your own. :)
