I agree with Jax2's suggestions.
I have owned a Modwright Sony 999ES, Exemplar Denon 3910 and APL Denon 3910. The Modwright is wonderfully musical and perhaps a tad romantic. The Exemplar is incisive, accurate and a labor of love. The APL Denon 3910 makes live music come to life in your listening room. I have heard nothing better including a few digital players that retail for $10,000+.
Depending on your taste and system tonality, they are all worthy of consideration. If money is no object, I rank them 1) APL Denon 3910, 2) Modwright Sony 999ES, 3)Exemplar Denon 3910.
If money is an object, I recommend the Modwright Sony 999ES. I have heard nothing that I prefer within $3000 of it's $1600 price on the used market.
