Hi Bricolo,

It depends on how much :$: :$: :$: :$: :$: You want to spend on the new/secondhand CD-Player.
If you want a High-End Player, go for a secondhand Wadia If the player has to be a new one, perhaps a TEAC VRDS XX will be the best choice!
Ones again it depends on the :$: :$: :$: :$: :$:.

All the best and keep us informed.

How about purchasing a SACD player? [Or a DVD-Audio player ... no need to start a huge debate here] Economy model only cost about $200 to $300. Upscale model would cost about $2000 to $3000.

The thing that drives me nuts about SACD player is that it takes forever for the player to start playing.

question 1: what is an sacd? I know what dvd-a is, but i never seen one, so it's rare enough that i'd prefer a classical cd player

question 2: what about the philips 723?

I would highly recommend listening to a Rega Planet, they sell for about $1400CAD ($1000 USD). I bought one a year ago, very pleased.

300 budget!

hi bricolo.
perhaps you should get the cdpro 2, and start with using the
internal dac.......? and later you can design your own dac - it will
not cost very much.
best regards,
