Short answer is try a Levinson 390S used for about 3K. I sold mine to go the computer audio route and haven't been nearly as happy with the computer thing as I thought I'd be. I'm a CJ guy too PR 11 with a ML39 Then PR12s with a 390S
then a PR16 then 16-2, have a friends CT5 in right now, he had the 250 as well.
While I have B&W Sig 30s I have a pair of 2CEs in another system with a 2500A
and PFR EV 1 Main system has PR15. The 390S simply retrieved a huge amount of detail from a spinning disc and simply could not be beat unless you were going the 40K route which I was not. An Arcam DV139 revealed how much more was being retrieved by the 390. I now have an M2Tech DAC, mac mini with JRiver and an Audioquest USB DSiamond cable so my digital is no slouch but for ease of use.
I'd say stay with the CDs until you have some serious time and a clear direction you want to go in. The computers give you a million options which is both a blessing and a curse and everyone has an opinion. Happy to chat should you wish. Rob
