Hi Guys,

Earlier I was thinking to use "Sony PS1" as a CD Player but after calling at many places I couldn't find the required model i.e. "SCPH - 1000/1/2" not even a single machine.

So guys, pls suggest me a decent CD Player or a DAC to be used with my current DVD-Player (what it is ?) under 10k suitable for the following configuration of mine :-

1) Amplifier - Norge Concerto Gold 1000

2) Speaker - Mission M35i

3) Speaker Cables - DAC SPK 14

4) Banana Plugs - 4 Pairs Fully Gold Plated Banana Plug

5) Stereo Audio Interconnect Cable (2RCA Male to 2RCA Male) - Profigold PGA 4201

6) DVD Player - Sony DVP-NS728HP

Waiting for suggestions guys. :p

Pls guide me whether DAC (with DVDP) or a dedicated CD Players is a better option under 10k.

I have finalized the whole configuration of mine by just doing extensive reading of hi-fi forums. I tried searching for my queries before posting this thread, so if anyone by chance finds a thread which has all my answers kindly point me on that direction but I would love if my queries are answered here itself. I hope to have a wonderful time here.

Kindly bear with me since I am a noob in this regard. :p

Regards,
'Arnold'

at present in Ambur
Marantz 63 is a good bet here, have used the 63SE version and is better then the latest budget players from Marantz , Cambridge Audio and NAD.

Where can one buy Beresford DAC in india (particularly in mumbai and Pune)

youll need to buy it here the 7520 . you will get more vfm by using a dac at that budget vs buying a stand alone cd player.

hmmm,
So I leave it there. I always like to buy my things in person.

Your options are used Maratz or older Denon or Oppo DV 970 players.

If you have little more time, I suggest putting a wanted ad and getting the PS1 only 2 models SCPH 1001 or 5501 - this has by far one of hte best audio circuits in the whole line of playstations and other CD/DVDP that costs 2 - 3 times the price.

Get a used CDP. Which city are you located in?

Dervan is the village where I stay(i work in a 300 bedded hospital, which is oddly situated in this village and I chose it because i like to run away from cities). I visit Mumbai and Pune once in 2 months.:)

I came across this CD Player from DNM while surfing from something else.

It claims a SNR of >100db and Distortion of less than .03%.

Can someone from Mumbai take a look at this product as see how it performs? If it meets the specs, and someone can work with DNM to make it improve a bit, this may turn out to be a ideal CD Player for all our members who are looking for a budget CD Player.

Cheers

Spiro, can you check with DNM about the price? It may be worthwhile for one of us to purchase it and do a review. If DNM agrees for a review, it will be wonderful. I also think with a bit of tweaking, it can turn out to be a good player.

Cheers

Venkat, Yes sir, if the transport side is good, we have lots of DIY masters here who can perfect mods on it to get the DAC side right!
