This special edition CD player puts analysis, authority and dynamics on its hit-list

£ 2995

This revised Antila remains a top-class player for the money, and a fine partner for the Award-winning Tucan II amplifier

£ 1000

If you prefer classical, jazz and sultry female vocals over moshing to Cradle of Filth, the Marantz SA-KI Pearl Lite is the player for you

£ 230

The Cambridge Audio Azur 350C is fine value, but spend a little more for a more accomplished all-rounder

£ 5998

When paired with its Osiris amplifier sibling Rega's isis is formidable, although it's still not the best at this price level

£ 42

It's small and straightforward, but we like this supremely affordable DAC's results with budget equipment

£ 4050

Best CD player £2000+, Awards 2010. Cyrus's ultimate CD player sounds staggeringly fast. It defines notes with exceptional precision
