Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

How about a brand NEW Marantz ?

Personally, I wouldn't spend that kind of money on a used CDP. I'd probably go for a new one that is a couple notches above the mass market cheapies, see how it sounds, and if its not to your liking try it with a good outboard DAC.

Marantz seems to have a few good CDPs. Look into these models which range in price from $399 - $1200 NEW with 3 year warranty. And they ALL have digital out in case you want to try an outboard DAC.

HD-CD1

CD5005

CD6006

SA8005

The US warranty is 3 years parts and labor (on non-Reference products) if purchased from an authorized Marantz dealer. Beyond that they will still provide support for a price. And it's not likely that Marantz will go out of business anytime soon, like some 'audiophool' fly by night outfits. Remember Raysonic? When their expensive CDPs went tits up, their customers were left with door stops.
