    Default Wanted: full width CD player

    Change of plan, looking for a full width CDP for the study system, preferably with SPDIF out. Budget 50-100.

    I was originally looking for a small footprint one but happy now with full size which should be easier really.

    I quite fancy something like an Arcam CD72 or 73 (had those and liked them) but appreciate they are thin on the ground at my budget!

    Anything tucked away? Out for much of the day so may be slow to respond.

    Would a trichord genesis III with original power lead and box be of interest? It's a pioneer stable platter unit.

    Richard. If you make another post or two here, your PM privilege will activate. It may even do so once you reply to this.

    Was going to say I have an Arcam Alpha 7se but looks like you're sorted now.
