This player seems so harsh in my system. Denon 1802 with Axiom M22s. I've got it hooked up to an analog connection. I borrowed my moms ten year old Kenwood changer and think I actually prefer the sound of it. The Kenwood though was missing some of the subtler soft bass lines and you could definitely tell the highs were subdued. Is there a player that can give me really good detail but still sound warm and relaxing. I only have around $300 to spend. Maybe I should have bought warmer speakers and paired them with something like this Sony. Instead of getting really revealing speakers and then trying to find a CD player to soften them down. This is so frustrating living where I do where you cant really demo equipment. I have only had this thing running for a few hours any chance its sound will change after a few days. The place where I got it has a super liberal return policy 60 days no questions asked, so I'm gonna give it till this weekend to see if i feel any different. In case I do end up returning it any suggestions for a replacement? I listen to mostly classic rock(Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Pink Floyd, etc. etc.) and I also listen to a lot of Alternative(Radiohead, Depeche Mode, Rage, NIN). Thanks.
