I'm after a second hand CD player. My father-in-law has a Linn Karik (partnered with Kairn/Klout and Kabers). I'm really impressed with the sound of this set-up. I've seen some second hand Kariks going on Ebay for around this price and am thinking of picking one up. How do more modern players compare to the Karik? Would a Cyrus CD7/8 not be up to the job? Or perhaps a Meridian 506/507? I'm not bothered about the player being brand new (I won't be using it that much, as I'm more into my AV). My thoughts are that I could get more for my money if it's a bit older. Please help!
