Can anyone recommend a SACD/CD player which came out less than a year ago with upsampling capabilities and balanced outputs that costs under $1,000? (Am I asking for too much?) I know that the Maverick received rave reviews and is now selling for under 1K, but the unit is on the older side.
I currently use a Denon 2900. I am fairly pleased with its CD playback quality. But the unit is over 4 years old. I am sure today's players half the price of the 2900 outperform it.
