McIntosh's MCD500 is state of the art for SACD/CD players. I have never heard finer sound quality. It is marketed as an SACD player, and it does very well there, but even if you don't have many - or any - SACDs, the MCD500 is worth a very close look just as a CD player, because it is not going to get any better than this.
