LBM, a search revealed that it has true 22W RMS (peak 50W) x 4 ouput. Thats an interesting feature as one doesn't need to go for a seperate 4 ch amp if played mildly or even more than half of volume level. Whats is the price of this model and what about availability? Please throw some light on it too. Also, somewhere seen it is specified as reference series with very good audio quality.

Yaar it does not have a true 22 w rms amp. It will be 22 watts but at 10 % THD. So if one want clean sound one has to put a amp for it.

LBM I totally agree to that but just checked that the players run only CD and MP3

But i was thinking of getting a good player with USB and AuxIN

Then you can go for Pioneer it supports USB. And will cost close to 7-8k (not sure). This will save you money and you will have to give me a party.
