advice cd player with great preamp section

I am in search of cd player with great preamp feature.I used to have Meridian 808.3 so I know it is a useful feature to have,it sounded little sterile to e though.I am looking for more musical cd animal like mybee Ayon cd5s,McItosh 1100 perhaps AMR cd 77.1 with no preamp section.Any other recommendations?I have a Tannoy Westminsters Roayal and tranzistor integrated amp Sroll Lyric,Kimber KS3035 and Harmonix HS101GP XLR int.
There is also Audio Aero La Fontaine ,itsupposed to be extremely good cdp with preamp.Any thoughts?
So I'v got McIntosh MCD 1100 + MC2301 monoblocks and I am very happy with the result.
I always been attracted to Mcintosh gear and his CDP is one of them. For the price worth it then?
