What type of tubes does it take? I might be able to make a suggestion, if it uses tubes I am familiar with.

Have the same CD Player and asking the same thing. I am leaning towards Gold Lion. Since I have a cary Sli-80 and changed the preamp tubes to gold lion. Blows Electro Harmonix out of the water which came with it. Helps with image, mid range detail Highs Do not Screech and bass goes lower and has more throw in woofer.
My favorite Old Stock 12AU7 is the Amperex made in Heerlen Holland around 1960. These are truly great especially if you can find real/honest 7316s at a decent price. I also like the Blackburn Mullard tubes for their rich warm tone. I have heard read only really good things about the current production Gold Lion as suggested. Hope that helps . The Heerlen tubes can get very pricy.
