    I had a Sony RCD-W3 CD recorder that was supposed to perform at around the same level as a CDP-XE570. Was looking for an upgrade and decided to dem the NAD C521BEE and the Marantz CD5400.

    I preferred the NAD, as I found it was less bright than the Marantz. Both players are detailed, punchy and well constructed. The NAD should be a better match with your amp than the Marantz. For £200, you can't go far wrong - a superb player. The CD5400 is still an excellent player - just not to my taste, soundwise.

    I've got a Marantz CD6000 OSE which I'm thinking of selling, because I never seem to use it these days (I always use my DVD player instead).

    Its black, and in perfect condition as far as I can tell. I originally paid £300 for it, so I'd be looking for around £150.

    If you're interested, let me know and I'll put up a For Sale ad in the Classified section.

    Regards
    Chris

    I've just bought a NAD C521BEE (titanium) from Richers for the princely sum of £160 and must say its an excellent player and will match your amp beautifully. Richers have it in their catalogue for £200 and on their website for £183.95 but I managed to get them to beat the £170 qouted by www.hispek.com (01727 791133) and www.hificonfidential.com by £10. Alternatively wait for the sales to start on Boxing Day and maybe you will find a better price for them to beat by £10.
