CD Player with XLR connectors

Hello,
I would like to take advantage of my 4bst preamp's XLR inputs for cd player, however it seems that that cd players with XLR outputs start at 3G, are there others that I may have missed that are less expensive? Right now I am using a $500. Marantz that I bought last year. Thanks.

CEC makes a nice little player that offers a balanced or RCA connection. It runs around $600.00 or so. I forget the model number, but it partners with their (also balanced) integrated at around $700.00 or the larger integrated at around $1200.

Thanks Monty,
That is exactly along the lines that i am looking for, i don't know if i will ever own a Esoteric, Krell or Marantz, however i did want to see if the XLR connection does make a difference in my 4bst, even for an inexpensive player (that is compared with the cost of the above. Thanks!

Thanks DUP for your reply, i had come across the Tascam, but had viewed them as more geared toward studio use versus home listening, however i will take a closer look.
Thanks!
