My trusty Meridian 508 CD player has finally given up the ghost but luckily, a mate has a spare CD5X and Flatcap 2X which he no longer uses because he has ripped all his CDs to a NAS drive.
He has connected the CD player and power supply via a DIN cable but both units have a mains cable. Is this right? If so, how does the flatcap improve the sound?
Is it possible to connect my Stageline to the Flatcap also?
I suspect this is all elementary to most on here but please be patient.
Both Meridian and Naim did some very good CD players.
Unfortunately spares are scarce and limited.
If you can get your 508 serviced and supported I’d suggest to do this as you never know when the CD5X goes off too, fingers crossed.
