Fred Kaplan of Stereophile - Krell Cipher CD/SACD player: the best I've heard in its price range, and the best I've heard, period,

Reviewers quote: The Krell Cipher is a great CD player: the best I've heard in its price range, and the best I've heard, period, in my home system. Maybe it will be obsolete before the decade is out, but a lot of CDs will still be out there, waiting to be played. If I can scrounge up the change, I'm buying one.
