I cannot agree with the description of the sound. This must be one of the most neutral CD-player made sofar. I suspect you are hearing shortcomings in the rest of your system. Try this player through a couple of good electrostats and you will note that you will not note it.
Regarding the build-quality "issue", that is just nonsense. So much gear has passed the tests over the years with much worse "issues". I get caught, almost everyday by a sharp corner of my Krell set-up. (However, I never get caught or feel sharp edges on my childrens Denver CD plastic set-up. does this say anything?)
The Primare is clearly in the Krell legue nowadays and it is NOT manufactured in China as the majority of "british" gear.

Chord’s QBD76 HDSD is a top-class converter that delivers a brilliant sound from a well-built package. It has plenty of visual appeal, too
There are more talented rivals on the scene, but the veterans are enduring greats
Cracking value for an all-in-one home cinema system with only a few spec and performance gripes qualifying our praise
