CD Player recomendations - sub £1000
I have a fairly decent if nothing fancy set-up: Exposure 2010 integrated and power amps, Kef Q5 speakers and a Pro-ject Xpression turntable. Problem? The CD player is letting the side down - a Marantz CD6000 is the only thing left over from my previous kit and it's being quite seriously shown up by the turntable right now.
I'm looking at spending around £800 on a new CD player but could stretch to maybe a grand if the right player was put in front of me. My friendly neighbourhood hi-fi dealer sent me away last year to wait for the entry level Densen (B-410?) to come out but I've read some quite disappointing reviews of it on-line. They also recommended the new Rega but I only have one top shelf on my rack and it's got a turntable on it, which makes top-loaders tricky.
I like a rich, but quite detailed sound. Involvement is a must as is a big wide sound. Essentially I want a CD player that sounds more like a turntable...
EDIT - Should probably mention musical taste really. Pretty varied, but mostly good complex rock (Floyd, Jeff Buckley, Marillion), some pop/dance music (Doves, Muse, Faithless), a bit of jazz (Coltrane, Diana Krall) and the occasional classical afternoon (piano solos to big bombastic concertos); so player must be an all-rounder.
