    I am soon going to get stereo speakers and amp for around $1000 total. I currently have a $70 DVD player, but I want a dedicated CD player that will be significantly better than the DVD player, but not nearly as expensive as the speakers/amp.

    I will be primarly listening to orchestral/vocal music, and have no interest in rock/dance etc. Can anyone recommend any decent CD players for this purpose in the $100-200 range?

    Thanks,
    Nick.

    (I hope noone minds me asking questions in several forums!)

    In that price range I would look on ebay or audiogon for a used player.

    Music Hall, Arcam, Rotel, Rega and Marantz make nice players. Sony SACD players make nice CD players also.

    I'll sell you a lightly used NAD C521 for $150 (retail new was $299)


    Unless you live someplace other than america. then your wall-power might not fit.
