Great single ended CD/SACD


I've noticed that a lot of the top CD/SACD players are noted for sounding their best through they're balanced outputs. Ayre, Esoteric, and DCS come to mind. Are there any single box players of the same quality range as these that are equally good through good old-fashioned RCA jacks? Any recommendations?

Maybe it's because the balanced outputs are higher voltage, the Pioneer DVAX10 I had was 6v balanced. Higher output means better definition although everyone here will have an arguement against that, 6v I thought was too much and sounded harsh.
Players that are digitally balanced use separate sets of D/A converters for the inverting and non-inverting legs of the balanced output. The single ended output is usually derived from only the non-inverting leg of the balanced output.

Thus the single ended output only uses half the D/A converters. This results in a bit higher distortion on the single ended outputs.

A few players derive the single ended outputs by combining both legs of the balanced output, and should sound similar either single ended or balanced. I know older Wadia gear did this, but I'm not sure about others.

Players that are not digitally balanced generate the balanced output from the single ended output (usually via a phase splitter) and may actually sound better single ended.

Anyone have any favorite single-ended players?
On the cheaper side of the spectrum the CD/SACD players I've found very pleasant sounding that I've owned that only have single-ended outputs are:

Pioneer Elite PD D9J

Sony SCD-CE595

Oppo BDP-83SE

I'm using an Arcam dv139 and really like it. To my ear it sounds basically like the cd37.
