Check into the underwoodhifi/parts connexion upgrade, you won't get a better sounding player for the same money.

I don't have any experience with the newer version but did own the CD25 for a couple of years and thought it was very, very good, better than anything else I tried in that price range. One of the advantages is the easy upgrade path from places like Underwood HiFi. I replaced just the opamps in mine and the improvement was remarkable.
Agree with the Underwood Mod advice.
I own the CD25 in both stock and upgraded form.
Upgrade will buy you more detail but both are absolutely well worth the money.
The upgraded player is in use in my main system and has more than kept pace with every other upgrade i've made to the system over the past three years.
I would suggest that you try to make sure there are tubes somewhere else in your system, not that these players are at all bright, but the tubes really help take them to the next level.
