Maybe look into Rega stuff. Denon made the 1650 AR that was an excellent player, you can pick it up used for about $450. Hope this helps

Another suggestion....Audio Refinement by YBA. I was always impressed with the build quality of the components in this entry level series. And it also has digital output (RCA's) so you can always upgrade your D/A converter (since the digital "wars" a Redbook 48 kHz D/A converter can be had for "short money". The CD player should only be $600- or LESS on the used market. Happy Tunes!
