How about the Pathos Digit
I know about that Phatos, and about Mimetism MA-27.2, but I need something a bit more affordable.
Maybe Rega Apollo - http://www.tonepublications.com/media/Apollo-r-open.jpg - but I'm not a big fan of that look.
Anything else out there? I know there's TASCAM in that dimensions, probably vintage...
Are these MUSICAL FIDELITY players good?

What I don't like with all these British players (Cyrus, Rega, Musical Fidelity) is that none of them has balanced outputs, and some of them don't even have detachable power cord..."
(1) REGA , CYRUS, ARCAM, MF, LINN, NAIM, ROKSAN, CREEK, U-NAME-IT , and all the rest of the Euro quality build cd spinners ALL DO HAVE detachable independent power cords (mains power supply in Euro-speak) ... Full stop. They make them for a world-wide market with different connector plugs and different power grids...
REGA / LINN / NAIM - as examples - even supply their own custom bespoke power cords (~$250- 300 price-point ) instead of the standard cheap crap quality bargain basement throw-in cables in cheap quality kit.
even my prior B system Chi-fi NAD budget followed suit, but it certainly sounded much better when I upgraded the throw-in ultra cheap supplied power cord to a better quality upgraded one.
( 2) My REGA cdp certainly does have balanced outputs (XLR) that I use in addition to the separate set of unbalanced (RCA) outputs .
