Dear all, I would like to upgrade the disc player in my 2-channel system. I'm using Yamaha DVD-S1800 right now (universal player capable of SACD, DVD-A, DTS), and I have been very happy with it. But I am wondering if there's something more out there. I like the SACD format and have a few discs in that format, so I would prefer the new player to have SACD capability. I also have a couple of DVD-A and 1 DTS disc, but these are less important to me, and I can keep my current player to handle those, as it seems to play them quite well. My system is: Klipsch RF-7 II floorstanding speakers, Onkyo Integra M-502 amp (140 w/ch), Schiit Freya Pre-Amp (which I run in tube mode with original tubes). Most of the time I also use 2X ART Pro Channel in my system to EQ slightly, as I play a lot of blues recordings. My original choice was Marantz SA8005, but I realize I missed that boat. I am aware of the following SACD players in my price range (below $1,500): Yamaha CD-S1000 Denon DCD-1600NE Reviews for both the units seem to be generally quite favorable, from my web browsing. If I have to sacrifice the SACD option, then I was mulling over additional options: Cambridge Azur 851C Cambridge CXC transport + Schiit Gungnir DAC Some time in the near future, I would like to add a network player to my system. I am aware of Marantz ND8006, which is CD+network. However, as my wife observantly suggested, we should add the network player as a separate piece, as it is more likely to be impacted by fast-changing technology. So, back to SACD/CD player upgrade... Any recommendations on my choices above? Anything I missed in this price range? Anything REALLY worth considering JUST outside of my budget? Thanks in advance!
