    Minimum of 5 discs but prefer larger capacity. The only major requirement is that it has a COAX digital output.

    SACD would be nice but not 100% necessary.

    Thanks for any and all recommendations.

    I have a Pioneer Elite. Can't remember the model #. It has Coax out. I use the digital out to my pre/pro so I can't comment on the DAC's in the changer, but it sounds very good the way I use it. It was around $450 new.

    SCD-222ES. Can be found for right around $300 used. The 555 is in the $500-600 range. Both are great redbook players and very good SACD players.

    I have 2 changers, one is probably the best changer made (sound quality), it is a CAL Audio CL-10. That piece of equipment resides in my 2-channel setup. It has a digital output, but also has great DAC's in it so, I always use the analog outputs on it. You may be able to pick one up used for around $500. I also just picked up an Integra CDC 3.4 which so far seems like a good player. It also has a coax digital out. They can be had for under $300.
