Considering a new SACD Player

I’m planning to purchase a new SACD player.  Have listened to MCIntosh MCD550, and have yet to audition Yamaha CD-S2100, or CD-S3000.  I have a Marantz SA-14S1 that will move to a secondary system.  I plan to use balanced cables to connect to McIntosh C-50 preamp.  Any thoughts??

Thanks!  Have read some up and down reviews on the Ruby, but definitely worth considering.  The dealer I'm working with sell Yamaha and Marantz.  He's really big on the Yammie
Thanks for you response.  I’m planning to listen to both the Yamaha, and the Marantz.  My dealer speaks highly of both!
Thank you!
Mostly Kimber Hero, Kimber 12VS speaker cables, and Tributaries interconnects, trib speaker cable.  A number of systems in the house. 
Hello all!  Today was the day, and the audition was short!  The Marantz SA 10 easily bested the Yamaha 2100.  The Yamaha is less expensive, and surely a fine SACD player, but I took the Marantz home!  Thanks to all who took the time time offer advice and comment..
I couldn’t agree more.  I’ve owned a CD Player since 1983, Denon, Marantz, McIntosh, some changer, most single, and I still have many of them.  Some are universal players.  I enjoy listening to them all, but the Marantz SA-10 blows them all away!
