Excerpt: A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away ... a company named Marantz introduced a series of CD players named CD43, CD53 and CD63. In their time and day, they represented probably the best available at their respective price points, or at least, among the best available. And they lived long, happy lives, evolving into models like 67, 67 Mk.2 and 67 KI Signature.
Heart CD 6000 - tube-modified Marantz CD 6000 player
16 January 2001
Excerpt: Heart, a company owned by hi-fi dealer Rik Stoet, are a small Dutch manufacturer of tube amplifiers and of output transformers for said amps. Before you start making up jokes about the name, they already pre-empted nearly all of them: how about the Heart Beat and Heart Attack 300B monoblocks? Only the name Sweetheart hasn't been taken. Yet. Next to the production of Heart amplifiers proper there are also StoetKit tube amp DIY kits, at very tasty prices.
