look into a used Rega Planet 2000 or Jupiter 2000 they both have analog warmth yet excellent detail and midrange liquidity

I didn't find the Planet 2000 to be warm or analog sounding, but it's not a bad player. Why the objection to tubes? The Jolida JD-100 has an unquestionably warm presentation with a smooth top end. I haven't heard a better player for the price. Yes, it has tubes, but they're tucked inside and don't require any fussing.
A perfect cd player for this ampplication and grade A+
rated in Stereophile magazine is the Sony SA 5400ES sacd player can be bought for well under $1300 a steal and ones of the best guys in all of Audio! can well compete with any $4-5k player, also Myself got the Terra firma clock and power supply upgrade which is currently By far the best bit master clock available to the audio public
takes this well built machine and will go toe to toe with any $10k player out there ,for My brother has a Esoteric 03SE and this player bettered that even he conceded this .This success is due to the super low jitter clock and the way they address the power supplys
in the low frequency area something no one else has been able to do and the technician I used even gives good discounts something all mod guys should follow especially with this economy.
