Marantz CD6002 or Denon DCD-700AE or other?

We are thinking about getting a new CD player to replace an old Marantz CD65, it's not that it doesn't work or anything but as it's over 20 years old and doesn't have a remote control we thought it was about time to change it.

The rest of the system is a Sugden A28 II amp and Mission 700 speakers. We have short listed the above two based on our criteria of being available in black and around 28cm deep.

Now before you suggest going and having a listen at a dealer I should point out that we are near Inverness and the only dealers there are a Panasonic or a Sony shop. We could go to Edinburgh but it's about 3 hours drive and at this time of year, not very enjoyable.

Which player would be the best with our system and will there be an improvement over the old player?

All your help appreciated. :)

Just bought the CD6002 with a rotel ra-05 amp and B&W 685 sepakers. Lovely sound to it.
