What is your budget and what components do you already have?

Good catch on the budget, sorry. I really have no specific budget figure but I gotta say that high bang for the buck components like the OPPO for example are valued and I get kind of queasy when $2500 CD players are discussed. Call it $1500ish for the player / DAC if that combo makes sense.
Existing setup is:
PS2 disk player as a digital source. Component to receiver and TOSlink sound to receiver.
Receiver is Pioneer Sc-07 with component vid to old Sony projection TV (this is going away...Samsung 8xxx series perhaps??)Audio outs are analog to Fronts/Center/Rears (era D14/era LCR4/era D4) and line out to JL Audio F112.
I have no specific audio complaints to address but recognize that room for improvement exists at this price point. My big unknown is relative quality of the receiver DAC vs. what is available externally and if a player can send hdmi video to reveiver and line level analog to receiver seperately?
