I'm not familiar with the CAL sound, but the Elite Pioneer DV-05, DV-09, DV-38(?), and DV-47 are all supposed to be pretty nice sounding players in their stock version. I own the DV-05, and I've seen them often for $300-$400 used. THe DV-09 is even better and often used for $600-$800. I've also heard great things about the modded cheaper Pioneer players like the DV-333 or DV-343(?)...they cost less than $200. People like Stan Warren and Dan Wright modify them for $200-$250 and they supposedly sound very nice.
