In that advert with cup holder for the car which they compare with the CD player with the 'very smooth eject mechanism' it starts with "here in japan they make some of the worlds finest Hifi" then procedes to show you one of the players, but the cd player they show is a model made in scotland, in the UK.

Simple, it's the Linn CD-12 CD Player. It's the top of Linn's C.D player range, & in Britain, costs some 12,000 pounds ($18,000)to buy! The Reason I know this, was I was invited to a demonstration of Linn products in August. We were asked to do a A/B comparison with their top turntable, the test system cost approxmately 100,000 ($150,0000 to buy, as they were also showcasing their top of the range loudspeakers! Knowing the cost of the CD-12, I think the technician would like to introduce the engineer/cup-holder designer to the delights of a "Glasgow Kiss" i.e headbutting, before strangling him with a 1 metre lead of Van Der Hul copper free carbon fibre interconnect! Reason: all Linn products are made in a factory located near Glasgow, Scotland.

Re:the Linn Sondek C.D player I attended a Hi-Fi World exhibition of Linn products, in Central London this year. They were doing a A/B comparison between their Sondek C.D Player & their LN12 record (vinyl) turntable. The C.D player costs in the U.K, approximately 12,000 pounds to buy, and the system it was a part of, 120,000 pounds!
