Hello everyone,
I need some advice from all you experts here. I am tired of having a crappy Sony CD player on my night stand that weighs about 2lbs at most. Hence, I would like to upgrade to an audiophile level CD player which sounds superior and is a bit more hefty. The limitation is $$$$. I am willing to spend no more than $200.00 but would ideally prefer to spend less than $100.00. I would be listening through a pair of Senn 650's of Grado RS-1's. Some of the choices I was looking at were the following:

DENON DCD-1500
DENON DCD-1500 II
DENON DCD-1520

Is there a major difference between these? Should I look at getting something better/different brand/price? Let me know.

For about $200 you could also look at

Older Rotels (855/955/965/970/975)
Older Marantzes (63/67)
Possibly some NADS - though they keep their value too well

For $100 - not many I can think of offhand
