I have a Marantz CD-63ki with a Chord Mod to the power supply, Rotel RA-1062 amp (from a what hifi comp) and Kef IQ5. The CD player is 10+ years old.
My question is has CD technology really moved on that would warrant me changing. The CD player was 500 and the CD mod was 270. The player still works and obviously the sound is good.
In most technical areas you do get more for less as time progresses but is it true with CD players compared to 2001; If I was to spend £500 on a new player would I hear a step change in performance and quality; the only advantage I can see is routing other digital sources via the DAC.
Thanks for any insights
