I'm looking to replace my Music Hall CD 25.2 with a permenant fixture in my main 2 channel rig. Not interested in tube players. Just a good old fashioned player that will get me near reference level quality, best bang for the buck. HDCD, SACD, etc. would all be added bonuses and would be nice. This will most likely be a used purchase, and would prefer to stay >$1k, but would go up to $1,500 for the right player. I've been looking at:
NAD M5 Master Series
Lexicon RT-10 (if I can find one for the right $$$)
Does anyone have experience with the older Classe, Music Fidelity, and other not-quite-vintage-but-good-deal-on-audiogon players? Experience with Roksan? What's with YBA? Other suggestions?
