Hopefully upon receipt of money for christmas I can look at buying a CD player for my system.
One of the most important things is a quiet mechanism, as I'll be listening close to the unit itself and at low listening volumes.
Would be more than happy to go second hand - have done with my current two components (C352 and 11Ls) and got so much for very little money.
Budget will hopefully be about £300. I mostly listen to classical music - lots of chamber ensembles such as string quartets but also plenty of large scale orchestral music.
EDIT: Spending less money would be fantastic - my CD collection isn't very extensive.
