You might consider the closeout Marantz SA14 if you can swing a few extra $.

I use a Sony 333. I was considering upgrading the unit and tried a much more expensive Dac and other players. None sounded better on Redbook that I tried, and there was very little difference in sound in general. In a blind test could not distinguish between the sony and other more expensive, newer units. Sony 333 is an excellent player and value in my opinion. I have an all tube system however that may make a difference. It is by far the least expensive unit in my system but I just can't justify changing it.
