Currently have a nice Teac CD-H750 .... really no complaints ... it has an optical out ... it also bested a Cambridge Audio 840C head to head to my ears ... more body to the sound. Upgrade urge has infected my brain yet again! Have always been curious about the Rega Apollo ... can get a used one in the $450 range from multiple sellers (not the R version) ... read numerous positive reviews ... and I like the form factor. Or .... feed the Teac as a transport into a new Schiit Modi Multibit for $250. This would be for redbook cd's only ... do not use streaming or computer files. Wildcard would be a non sampling, non filtered Pro-ject DAC Box S FL for $222 clearance at Audio Advisor ... but very few reviews ... allegedly made for redbook cd improvement. Both used Apollo and Modi would be returnable. (Apollo at TMR)... if no improvement over Teac. Modi would open up possibility of streaming etc... if I choose to wander down that road. Apollo might reap better sound over the Teac. Advice ... thoughts ... suggestions ????
