    Have you considered the HSU VTF-2 or VTF-3? The VTF-2 goes for around $450 and the VTF-3 goes for around $800.00. Plenty of power. Fondly mentioned in rewiews.

    Crutchfield no longer has the Sony SCD-C555ES on its web site. Is this the end?

    I picked up my 555es about a week ago on Audiogon. $599.00. Love at first sound (and sight!). There should be more of them available. This one dude has more NEW units for sale.
