Best cdp under $2,500


I am looking for a used cdp under 2,500 which provides a musical 3-d natural sound which does not roll off the highs and has good bass. Some models which come to mind:

Wadia 302
BAT VK D5
AR CD3
AMR cd-777
dvdgreco
Sony 5400ES
Alan
Audio Research CD3 MKII.
I echo the Sony 5400ES.
ARC CD3 MKII
Sony XA5400ES, especially if you have a receiver or pre-pro that can accept the Sony's pure, unprocessed DSD signal via HDMI cable.

The Sony also has both balanced and unbalanced outputs.
Densen Beat B-410 XS.

Best regards,

Piermauro
Bryston BCD-1 CD player, if you're lucky enough to find one.
EAR Acute.
Pioneer PD-9
Yamaha CD-S1000
Sony XA5400ES recommended here also.

Regards,
I'd suggest finding a used Simaudio Eclipse, one of the later ones with the PSX power supply.
Sony SCD-XA5400ES by far...nothing will come close except for the Oppo players but you have to mess with all the features of universal player...tv, firmware, slow operation...

BAT VK D5: Old technology from the 90's
AR CD3: A bit obsolete too, only 90db of channel separation
Wadia 302: Obsolete too
AMR cd-777: Nice player, but not sure if you will find it below $2500...
Don't rule out an Exemplar modded Oppo 95. It will impress!
