Hello

I did go with my friend at the near small city, but the Denon DCD-425 at the used stock store was solded and there was only cheap used cd players, but we founded and buy, at another store, a Denon DCM-260, so I will replace the JRC4558 output opamps by OPA2134 and put small caps across the electrolytic output caps in that cd player.

I wouldn't buy a used CD player, partly because the lasers have a limited lifetime, and with the ongoing improvements you'd pay the same price for a new player as for a used one with the same performance.

DSP_Geek, I can understand your concern, but I have found some bargain old CD players for 10-20 quid.
I don't think a brand new 10-20 player would come close.
AND, due to the almost obscene ramping up of mass production, most modern stuff is not really built to last, it might die as soon as the old one (I had a Sony DVD-R fail on me within a year).

Don't be scared to buy an old one. If it does go wrong quickly, buy another - they're cheap enough.

Cheers,
Phil
