I had an Ayre amp and preamp and was using an Arcam FMJ 23 which I replaced with a Rotel RCD 1072. I have been very happy with this unit. I purchased a Marantz 8001 to replace it because the Rotel did not have SACD capability, but I found the sound to be inferior to the Rotel. It sells for 6 or 7 hundred new and about 400 used on Audiogon. I think it is comparable to CD players that sell new for 2000 or more. If you search the reviews you will find others who share that opinion.
