balanced connection player

can anyone suggest a cd player(<$2000) with balanced connections?
BAT, Ayre, Meridian just off the top of my head (used under your budget)
New units within your budget would be Cairn Fog v2, Lector CDP-0.5T, Unico CD player, Consonance CD120...just off top of my head. Used units: add Talk Electronics Thunder 3.1B, Linn Ikemi...
Add all the Classe CDPs to the list.
Cary 303/200, Theta Miles to name a few more in your price range used.
i was doing a little research from the list and found the Meridian has the most "favorable" review, does the 506 series has balanced inputs too?. The Theta Miles looks like a tank!
also can't lose with Muse; 8 transport, and 9, 9sig, 10, and 11 (DVD) players.
The 506 does not have balanced connections. Good luck finding a 506. I have been looking for that or a 507 for months. The only one I saw in that time was a faulty 506 on Ebay. oh well! Arthur
Thule has a couple of CD players that are balanced.
Good value. You can pick one up for around $600 used here when available.
since most of these brands are not available in my area(even san francisco), i almost have to rely on reviews goes on
A Wadia 830 can sometimes be found in your price range, but keep a sharp eye out because they usually sell about 4 seconds after they are listed.
Also, if you are looking for true balanced design, be sure to read the fine print in the owners manual or research the product on the internet. AES/EBU XLR terminals does not necessarily imply a balanced circuit. Some put them there for convenience only, and they are unbalanced.

(Sorry if you knew all that already)

You could get a pro player or recorder (HHB, Tascam,Otari etc.) and upgrade it later with a better clock and converters like Apogee BigBen (clock)and Mini DAC which works on any sample-rate up to 192kHz.
It'll go over your budget but you don't have to buy it all at once and the DAC will be future-proof for quite some time.
If you can find a used Classe CDP-10, I believe you would be a happy camper.
i ended up getting a thule player, thanks for all the info.
