CD Player/Transport

Recommended Posts

Having a hard time finding a new  CD Player/Transport with "Balanced" analog outputs.   Looking to replace my Adcom GCD 600.  My preamp and amp have balanced outputs and would like a CD player with as well.  Looking to spend no more than $500-$600.  Any recommendations out there?

 

Thanks

 

John

Might look for an Oppo BDP95 or 105 Lot's of good deals showing up on used ones as users are going to 4K players.

You have a long run where balanced connectors are necessary?

No.  However I have my pre -amp and amp running balanced connections.  INMHO better performance than unbalanced.  That is with my equipment and my ears.

I've had a few Emotiva components and they were all top notch.  About the only major issues they've had is firmware updates sometimes taking a long time to be released and announcing new equipment and delaying production for a while.

Looking at this CD/Player/Transport.  Specs seem good, and reviews are decent as well.

Thanks

I really like mine. It’s built like I would build a component; like a tank. I’m very impressed with the quality for the price.

Well, I was surfing Audiogon, and ended up purchasing this transport player.

 

Should integrate well with my other gear.  Thanks to all for the input.

I owned the Adcom GCD-700 and GCD-600 and both carousel players were great sounding pieces, although a bit clunky when rotating to another CD.  The GCD-750 single player is highly regarded and should be a wonderful addition to your Adcom stack.

 

Congrats and enjoy.

Thanks Bill.  I own a GCD 600 that I am replacing.  Works and sounds great as you mentioned.  I have original box and remote.  9/10 if anyone is interested?

 

Best regards,

John
