    Sony SCDXE597S- Seems to only shine with SACD but turns up cheap
    Marantz CD5400- Very good for the money (£100 in some cases), look at the OSE version as well
    NAD 521 BEE- Good player, not as well built as the other two. No optical out if that matters.

    Also look at the Cambridge 540C- another 5 star unit and a nice sounding one at that.
