naim cd5x- very musical

I wouldn't worry about any CD player being too much for my system--for my budget, yes, but not for my system. This is because every time I have heard a source upgraded in a system the improvement has been audible, and pleasing. The same has not been true for speakers, where a big improvement can mean you hear any weaknesses upstream.
With your gear I would go for a Shanling T100 or better. (Used Linn Ikemi? Haven't heard the new Linn CDP.) The two-box setup is not in itself better musically than the single-box approach, no matter what people say.
