    I want to buy a new CD player. Which one would be a good choice for 200-300? SACD isn't really necessary. Decent D/A converter is. Our DVD player broke (Sony DVP crap) and now we're using a Mintek (even crappier) for DVD. It sounds like doodoo for CD audio. I do plan on buying a new DVD player too, but music is a little more important right now.[​IMG]

    Phil, this subject has been discussed here quite, so do a search. Leading contenders in your price range include the following (mix of single-disc players and carousel changers):

    * Sony SCD-C222ES (SACD/CD changer)
    * Sony CDP-CA70ES (CD changer)
    * Denon DCM-370 (CD changer; being replaced by the '380)
    * Marantz CC4300 (CD changer)
    * NAD 523 (CD changer)
    * Cambridge Audio D300SE (single-disc CD player)
    * NAD C 521i (single-disc CD player)

    Definitely consider the Sony 'C222ES. It's a great player for the money. You should be able to get it for around $350 from Oade Bros. (1-229-228-0093 or 1-229-228-4480), J&R Music World (1-800-221-8180), or OneCall (1-800-340-4770), all of which are authorized dealers.
