modify CD25 or buy new CDP...


I am feeling the need to upgrade my CDP somehow. I am a bit torn on whether or not to just modify my current Music Hall CD25 or buy a new CDP.
The short list of CDP's that I could afford used are pretty much as follows (under $2500 new / $1500 used quality CDP):
Primare D-30.2
Vecteur L4.2
Arcam FMJCD23

I have never heard a modified CD25 and just am not sure how it would stack up against CDP's in my price range.
My current system consists of the Vecteur I-4 integrated and PSB Silver-i's.

Thanks for any insight.

If you don't find enough people here who've had direct experience comparing a modified CD25 with one of your other choices, it might be worthwhile to at least upgrade the opamps in the CD25 since that's a very easy upgrade to do yourself, no more difficult than changing a fuse.

At least you'd get a better idea of what the CD25 is capable of and you would probably recoup at least most of the outlay if you decide to sell.
