    ok i don't know whether to buy a marantz cd5400 for £130
    or a second hand Cd62. for £170
    I am after an improvment over my dvd player, a bit more base and more range.
    would the marantz do for what i want?

    Definately get the Arcam - by all accounts the CD5400 is **** poor (I am talking about real world users, not magazine reviews...)

    Do a search on Google - loads of users are slagging them off, and apparently there are big reliability issues.

    Hello again, don’t forget the CD63 Ki Signature, It’s within your second hand price range, I will be looking for one as soon as I have the finances available. I did listen to a CD72 very nice but the Mono-Blocks gave me a greater increase in sound quality.

    don’t forget the CD63 Ki Signature

    Agreed - I have one myself - they come up regularly on EBay and tend to fetch around £150 - if you can get one boxed, in good condition, for that prices its a steal.

    I've owned and heard numerous CD Players, and this is the best I ever owned - the mags (spit!!) reckoned back in its day it sounded like a £1000+ player, and I tend to agree.
