I got my NAD C541i for $435, including shipping from California to Michigan. Between the Cambridge and Music Hall, I'd go with the Music Hall CD-25. It looked and sounded great (in a dealer's otherwise High-end system in his home). I was less impressed by a Cambridge in a similar context. My other favorite CD player for under $1000 (besides the NAD 541i) is a $700 Rotel (971 - haven't heard the 1070). I hope you'll be able to audition your prospective CD players for yourself. Each has its own, usually subtle, sonic differences.
