Check out the Panasonic DVD H1000 as a Cd player. I have one and it sounds great as a CD player. It is solidly built and plays DVD's great also. Someone has one for sale for $400 (not me).

I own the D500SE as well. Great player when it is working. Major transport problems inherant in the "specialy made" transport. Though NAD is not known for great reliability either, the c542 is a bargain even new. The old Sony 9000 DVD player was wonderful and can be picked up on Audiogon for between 500 and 1000.
