Hi everyone, Around 1992 I bought myself a Meridian 200 transport with a 203 DAC 7 digital converter. It cost around £1500 at the time and produced to my ears anyway the best sound I had heard from CD. I used it until about 1997 before selling it on. After a fair few years without a decent system I've been bitten by the Hi-fi bug again and am in the process of putting together a new system. My question is, how much will I need to spend in todays terms to at least equal or hopefully improve upon the Meridian combo. My budget for a new CD player is £500 maximum and I don't like buying second hand or ex-dem models. I had in mind either the Rega Planet or maybe an Arcam CD72T or it's replacement the CD73T. So what do you guys think.
