the wadia 12 which I use to own a long time ago, won't be a huge step to justify the price. (about the same used price as when I sold mine 4 years ago) it uses 19 bit dacs.

I have owned the Wadia 23 and currently use the transport version Wadia 22. I dont think you will be a bit dissapointed in the sound, i use it in conjunction with a
Levinson 36 dac, but the 23 is still an excellent sounding player, it uses the Pioneer Stable platter mechanism. i believe the current 830? uses it as well.
I have compared many many cd players in my system and for the price, i havent heard anything even close.
Hope this helps.
