    I want to get a CD player for my bedroom setup since my yamaha broke. I'm wondering what's a good cd player for around 100-200? I would like to get something like rotel or nad but way out of my range. Please make some suggestions...i want to get one as soom as possible i'm getting sick of using a portable cd player. Thanks

    Khoa,

    I would recommend either the Sony SCD-CE775 or the
    Denon DCM-370. Both are five-disc changers. The Sony has multi-channel SACD capability and the Denon has excellent Burr-Brown DAC's and HDCD decoding. The Sony is now out of production and is difficult to find, but if located, it should cost between 170.00-200.00 new. The Denon may cost you up to 250.00, but is also well worth the money. I have seen the Sony still in stock at a few select Good Guys and Circuit City locations, so give it a shot there. The Good Guys stocks the Denon, but at its full 300.00 msrp. Look online to find this one in the 200.00 range. Hope this helps.

    Reg

    If you don't have a high-end system, the Marantz CC-3000 is a good changer at under $200, with a fast and quiet mechanism.

    Khoa, I second Reggie's recommendations of the Sony 'CE775 and the Denon '370. I have used both extensively, and I own the '370 and owned the 'CE775 for a short while. Both are excellent players in their price range. Another player to consider is the Sony CDP-CA70ES. It does not play SACDs, but it is a good changer. It retails for $300, but you should be able to get for around $200-250 through Oade Bros. (1-229-228-0093 or 1-229-228-4480), OneCall (1-800-340-4770), or J&R Music World (1-800-221-8180). All three are authorized Sony dealers and offer good discounts.
    For more information on the Denon '370 and Sony 'CA70ES, go to www.crutchfield.com.
