    Hi All,

    I would like some advice on a potential CD player upgrade for my system.

    My current system is:

    Arcam A85, P85 Pre/Power Amp
    Arcam CD92 CD Player
    Audio Concept Jaguar Loudspeakers
    John Dory Interconnects

    My budget is £800-£900 for a second hand CD player. I have been looking at the Musical Fidelity A3.2. Does anybody have any opinions on this player?

    Any other players which would give me an improvement to my existing system again suggestions would be grateful.

    Cheers in advance

    Seanc.

    Hope you don't mind me asking this ... but what is lacking in the sound of your system and what do you hope to improve by upgrading (replacing) the CD player?

    I can't give any advise anyway cause my experience is much lower in price range ... I'm just curious what you feel is lacking in the A85 / P85 / CD92 setup - have you also thought that might be better to change amp or speakers rather than the CD player.
