In conclusion, my recommendation is this. If you are a casual listener of music, or an MP3 or streaming fanatic, the Cary CD-500 is probably not for you. If however, you really listen intently to your music and have a burgeoning wall full of CDs, you owe it to yourself to hear what a well built, well designed stand alone CD player can do for your music. Like the CDs you love, your CD player should last a lifetime. The Cary Audio Design CD-500 is as well crafted as the sound it recreates. Maybe it's time to for you to dump that old Chevy and get the Mercedes? After all, there is no substitute for quality.
