You said it yourself, if it breaks down you might just as well trash it. Personally, I don't like the odds.YMMV

To Schubert: Thanks for the advice. Without changing horses in mid stream, there is a Marantz S1 player on sale on AG. Have you ever heard it?? or compared to other supposedly high end players?? I have always associated Marantz with mid-f gear.
BTW, the Rega Saturn ad that was up is now expired. And, they do NOT come up that often. So beside, the Marantz, I have Sony XA5400ES; and Cambridge Audio 840C as contenders in my neurotic pursuit of better CD player. I am not interested at all in computer audio, so accessory inputs on both the Marantz and Sony may be superfluous to me.
