Has anyone heard the CEC TL-50XZ

I am looking for an analogue sounding CD Player, $3000 max.
The recent review of the CEC TL-51 XZ in Stereotimes suggests this one is worth considering.
Does anyone know it?
I'd appreciate any opinions or advice
CEC is very good and would be smooth and rich. There may be a couple of other good ones but there are far more worse ones.

Look at Arcam, Ayre, and maybe a Great Northern Sound modified Wadia but that would be a little brighter.
