    hifilover1979 Bigger than you...

    I'd be looking at an Arcam or Marantz CDP at that budget

    The CD62 was a not bad player at all: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Arcam-CD...214879?hash=item3fa3de9c5f:g:gfsAAOSwL~hbOPXg

    This might be worth looking into as well: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Arcam-Al...082785&hash=item1a57f6bfe4:g:4~0AAOSw1WxbRifP

    This wasn't a bad spinner either: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MARANTZ-...943975?hash=item1cb18dcaa7:g:W-gAAOSwrTVbQR6A

    Not a bad Denon here either: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Denon-DC...441239&hash=item214207b786:g:EcwAAOSwI8lZ-H5b

    I think I've still got my Arcam Alpha 9CDP in the loft (unless my brother still has it)

    If you can stretch your budget a touch I'd be happy to let that go; fully boxed with power lead etc (need to find it first)

    Wasn't the 9 in Arcam grey? As it happens, I wouldn't mind trying one myself if that's a deal breaker for the OP.

    If your looking for a universal player i would avoid sony and look at marantz and pioneer. I had sony sacd players and all if them had laser faults.

    Now that I spent some time with Shigaclone CD transport, must say there is a long way to go for most of the standard machines, depending what level of SQ you want to achieve.

    Cant say i have noticed any difference in transports on dvd or cdps going into a dac sound wise.
    Dvdps can be noisy when they spin discs.
    Also not sure if the older universal players can output dsd if thats a requirement.
    Best check.

    I’ve got a silver Pioneer DV757AI universal player I excellent, fully working condition, complete with original remote & manual.

    I was using it for SACD & DVD Audio playback & it plays everything I’e thrown at it. Sounds great with redbook CD too.

    I can sort out some pics if you’re interested.

    Looking for £75 inclusive of delivery.
