Need a CD Player

So, I'm in need of a new CD player for my setup. Not sure what to get...I could use some direction.

Here is my current set up..it's old but I'm enjoying it.

Pioneer SX-1700 Stereo Reciever

Technics SL-B20 turntable

Two Ohm Model C's in great shape

Any suggestions? I'm fairly new to this, so anything would help.

Vague

You're interested in a CD player "as-is", with no external DAC?  You want a CDP with quality sound?

What music styles are your faves?

CD PLAYER

Until recently i had been using an Ayre C5xe/MP CD/SACD player, which I paid $6000 for about 6 years ago. IMO it was clearly the best you could get for under $10k, and pretty much state-of-the-art.

That was until i heard the OPPO BDP-95; it is better and costs only $1000. I have never heard anything better at ANY price for CD and SACD; it is incredibly good-sounding. 

I think it makes all of the players in the $800 to $8000 price range obsolete and irrelevant. Anyone who can afford one is making a big mistake IMO if they don't buy one. It is an incredible bargain (and is also a Bluray/DVD player).

If you are looking for something less expensive, the Cambridge Audio 550C player is a pretty good CD player for $399.

Why need a cd player?

CD is already dead!

Record labels no longer print CDs.

CD shops in major cities vanished. You can buy over internet only if leftover stocks still available.
