Replacement for NAD 5100

I've been using an old NAD 5100 CD player, which I absolutely love.  Unfortunately, it is on its last legs now, and refuses to play all but the most pristine condition CDs.  I'm looking for something a little more modern that wouldn't have any trouble playing burned discs or discs with a few blemishes, but I really really love the sound of the NAD.  I'm hoping somebody here has listened to a 5100 and could recommend something similar.  My budget is sub-$400, but would be willing to pay a little over that if I must.  Any help appreciated!

Check out the $350 Marantz CD5004, reviewed by Bob Reina last March -  www.stereophile.com/content/marantz-cd5004-cd-player - which has superb error correction.
