I own the DV-50s, nice player, but no where near as musical as the Linn, and especially not the CD12. I have heard the TOTL esoteric gear at shows but have always been under-impressed by it (probably didn't help that is was usually on an all Esoteric system and their speakers really didn't impress me).
Seems you opened shop shortly before I left St Louis or I'd come by and listen.
