    Looking for suggestions for a new CD player under $1,500 available in silver finish. I was planning to buy Oppo UDP-205 but it's only available in black...

    I've heard the Yamaha CD-S1000 and it was fantastic. Also does SACD and can usually be found around $1100-1250. The silver version is a little tough to find in the States, but not impossible.

    Cambridge Audio also has a nice selection with silver faces, too. I have one of their D500SE CD players from about 15 years ago, and it still sounds great. Mine is black, but most of what they offer comes in silver, as well.

    I found a gently used Yamaha cd-s2100 for hair over your specified budget. CD,SACD, and USB Dac. It is an amzing, flexible unit that sent my beloved McIntosh player packing. Definitely worthy of consideration if you can find one in your price point.

    You could get a Cambridge CXC transport for a few hundred bucks. Spend the other +/- $1K on a good DAC. You'll have a good disc spinner and more flexibility.

    The CXC + Benchmark DAC is what I did, and I am very happy.
