Most of this forum know's I'm no huge fan of the Compact Disk. That said, some opinions are warranted.
After over a year of contending with the "convenience" of streaming my CD's to the stereo via apple gear, and by convenience I mean drop out's, anemic bass, shitty DAC's, and crappy Apple preamp sections, I'm considering buying a nice used CD player. My personal experience has been with Denon, Arcam, Cambridge and some Vincent, but I'm also considering Rega or saving for a while and getting a Naim or Krell.
Any audio/music lovers with any experience with digital? I realize I'm talking to a very small audience here. I haven't bought a digital device in close to 8 years and it should be mentioned that since I compared CD's in my new at the time Arcam and the same LP on my Rega Planar, I've never been inclined to. CD's suck. I'd just like to have them suck less.
For reference, my analog rig is a Rega 3 with upgraded power supply and a Grado Reference Platinum, which may, depending on finances, be upgraded to a billet sub-platter and an Ortofon Black or Grado Reference Sonata. Something in the 500-800 range.
