1/2 width because I'd put it on top of my desktop PC, under my desk.

I've only somewhat looked around at this point so I haven't come across many brands or models yet.

Thanks !!

If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.

Why don't you want to use PC as player? Get a decent sound card, pair of active speakers and you are all set.

I use a PC now. I have 2 setups I rotate through: AMB y2 + CKKIII DAC/amp, and MF V-DAC + Schiit Valhalla. I want to compare those to a dedicated CD player (and/or with a DAC).

I have come across a few, but none are really floating my boat at this point for bang for the buck:

a bunch of Teacs
Pro-Ject CD Box (SE)
Cyrus
Cambridge Audio Sonata CD30
NuForce CDP-8 CD Player
DENON DCD-CX3 Micro CD/SACD Player
Audio Analogue Primo CD player (rev2.0)

If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.

Sorry, but I can't help audiophile itch. Computer with any mid level (semi-)pro audio card (either internal or external) is perfectly good for all types of stereo playback, including high-resolution records.

I'd go buy an old Meridian 508 used. Much better sound for about the same $$

Although, I don't know why you bother with a high quality cd player if you're going to run it through the computer.
