In terms of CD players, I believe that a multiformat player is the way to go. I was thinking about getting the OPPO DV-981HD. In 2007 in won the product of the year from Absolute Sound magazine, which I tend to respect the review more than the Stereophile based reviews. Apparently it has a sound quality that rivals standalone CD players many times it's price. The OPPO DV-981HD costs $229. Does anyone have any experience with this unit?
