Try a Jolida jd100. Mine sounds great, I recently rolled some Voice of Music branded 12ax7a's in and I'm hearing stuff on my favorite songs I've never heard before.

Marantz ND8006 combines CD with future proof network capabilities.

The Marantz CD5005 is barebones entry level CD player.  The CD6006 is, according to What Hifi, the best available CD player. It also has usb.

I was also loorking at  Marantz 6006. Sony stated above is much cheaper, but of course it is stock. And there are newer models now if going to buy new.

 

So..., would Sony 170 model be a wise decision against Marantz 6006?

Update.....the Sony arrived yesterday in very good shape. Hooked it up and listened to a Harry Connick light jazz CD and highly enjoyed it. No harsh highs or ear fatigue. This fills my needs well and I appreciate all the advice....especially Moray!

Yes it is and this is my workshop! I have 40 feet of this ugly industrial grade shelving full of stuff including my stereo. I hung white bedsheets in front of all the shelving which I think helps tidy things up a bit. My LaScalas are in corners about 3 foot off the floor. A couple of big easy chairs finish the decor! I think it sounds good so not much real work happens in my “ workshop”.

Very nice! I’ve built, refurbished, and repaired many projects in my garage/workshop for years having many audio systems there and really enjoyed it.

@moray james just curious, what modifications do you perform to these units?

I add filtering to the supply and to the drive motor and the servo control of the laser lens.

I have a Sony c333es modded at modwright 18yrs ago and still going strong.  Had to run a cleaner thru it last year, but still sounds great.

Sony has always been solid and reliable and there is room to work inside of the SR510H which is a big deal. My brother still has the first Sony CD he ever bought in 85 and it still works well and still sounds good.

I'm another huge fan of the Bluesound Vault 2 system. Best thing since sliced bread with some cheese and a nice Chardonnay!

I've never had great luck with Sony gear.  I loved their picture tubes, and I've got (in storage, some already known to not power up any more) or had various media playing / recording equipment, but their electronics have fairly consistently proven short-lived.  Of course I must say I've never reached higher in range than middle-of-the-road so that's likely a major factor.
