The Bryston BCD-1, Cambridge 840C and Creek Destiny CD players have all received what I would term as rave reviews recently and all are in the same ballpark price-wise. I'm currently using the Rotel RCD-1072 and wonder if I would gain any significant improvements by updating to any of the above mentioned CD players. This would probably be my last CD purchase as it seems some type of hard drive or flash card device will replace CD and DVD in the foreseeable future. By the way, the Rotel replaced an early 90's Phillips-based Marantz unit and the difference, to me at least, was staggering. I had just about given up on CD as a format until that point.
