    Mike, are you referring to the REF 150 or the SE version? BTW, I understand that the REF 160S weighs 100 pounds. Where is the extra weight coming from?? Larger trannies?

    Mike,

    Have you had a chance to listen to the new CD6SE. I own a REF CD-8. Thinking about a swap to get into streaming. Any thoughts? How do the redbook ops compare between the CD-8 and CD6SE?

    MIke

    On this point we have to agree to disagree -I prefer the old Ref 150 look, the new look reminds me of a microwave. I also have concerns re how the perspex facia will age?

    Now if ARC can bring out a solid face Ref160s then they might have my interest. For the moment, old school rules for me.

    Regards

    J
