Hopefully one or more of you can point me in the right direction as I search for a cd player that matches up with my current system and the components I will be purchasing over the next 12 months.
My current set up includes the following components:
Toshiba HD-A3 (use for movies and cds)
Paradigm Studio 20v.4 fronts (no other speakers at this time)
I will be upgrading the receiver to probably a Denon AVR-2308CI and adding two Paradigm atom monitors for my rear speakers some time in the next 12 months.
Right now I am looking at the following CDP's:
Cambridge Audio Azur 640c v.2
There is one shop in town that carries the Arcam and the NAD, but unfortunately I cannot test it with my own setup and their setups are much better than mine, so it's not the best situation for testing. The main types of music I listen to are classic rock and alternative rock.
I've read through all the threads about these players and all seem to get high marks here, and those same high marks are why i am looking at these particular players but I need some opinions on what will sound the best with my setup.
Any advice is welcome and appreciated!
