Dear Forum, I'd like to ask for what would be your top-fice choices if you had no CD Player and wanted to purchase one paying up to, or around, €200 (or $US) price point. Please bear in mind: "best" can mean many things, but consider reliability, quality, specs, features and, if you like, your subjective taste on "how good it sounds" suggest new or used, vintage or 21st century, or both, as for me it makes no difference - the best, in your view I don't buy into the SACD or HDCD, for some reason Ignore what my hifi set up is or would be - just consider players on their own merit Many many many thanks for this. Too many brands, too many specs to consider. Please help this man. Floyd PS: I realize that for some of you 200 euros is far too low, but I'm confident that might be some good finds in the used market as well as in the new too. I'm no audiophile or have any pretension, but I like my sound and detect quality when I hear it.
