    I need a CDP to go with the speakers, amp, and receiver I already have.

    You see, my dad used to use these as part of the entertainment system for main living room. Then he got a Dynakit tube amp and Cerwin-Vega speakers, and I get to have what was being used.

    However, he's keeping his CDP and now I need one.

    I'm looking for something really clear sounding, that plays MP3s and CD-Rs, and has a remote. I'd also like to keep it below $300 or so.

    I recommend shopping at www.crutchfield.com. They tend to have good stuff.

    Here's an inexpensive one with a lot of features.

    Trev, I think you forgot to post the 2nd link.

    Anyway... I'm considering this one and this one.

    The Denon has better specs (2-20 Khz VS 5-20 Khz and 108Db signal-noise ratio VS 98Db.), but it also has a bad review. Because of the small number of reviews on both of them, it's hard to know if that was just an uncommon lemon.

    Search one of the audio forums. I'm sure this question has been asked there tons of times. Try www.hometheaterforum.com
