    I am planning on getting an Arcam DV27 in a few months once they have the DVD-A bit sorted out and in the mean time I need a CD player. I am currently using a Sony DVD player but can't take it any more, after hearing the DV27 it's just not good enough.

    So, what I need is a temporary CD player, a fairly good one that I can get maybe second hand for £100-200 and most importantly that is not full width. I'm looking for something like the Cyrus CD7 but without the price tag. It's only a temporary solution so I'm not too fussed what it is but it has to fit in a cupboard that won't take a full width unit.

    So are there any competent CD players that are in reasonable second hand supply for around £100 and no wider than 350mm?

    I'm sticking an ad in the classifieds if anyone has such a thing.

    Look around for an old Linn player. You should be able to get something for the money.

    for that money, maybe one of the older Philips machines. Pity it has to be stop gap a quad 67 would fit the bill if you can find one, Ace machine. Meridian did some smaller players, some of the older ones might suit the budget.

    Do you know anything about the Quad 66? How do you rate it whats it's value approx second hand in good order? Can't find any meridian players anywhere although that would be nice.
