I am currently playing all my CD's on my DVD player, Pioneer DV656A. I am considering adding a dedicated CD player. Could you please advise me as to how much I would have to spend in order to greatly improve music playback. I know the Denon 3805 is not the greatest for handling music, but I am assuming that a dedicated CD player will still give me some improvement. I am looking into other alternatives ie,power amps/monoblocks, but, I am also considering upgrading other areas of my system too, so I may just opt for a CD player now and put my finances into another area of the system. Thanks everyone. Johnny.
