    Means it may have a Marks or something slight that renders it not new

    Personally, I'd feel inclined to stick to Rega. They sound decent enough and at least you can get them serviced or repaired if need be. Spend any spare cash on a good DAC.

    To be honest, I'm a little disappointed with the Rega. I bought it specifically because I thought the top loading mechanism would make the drive more resilient than a drawer mechanism. It replaced a TEAC VRDS7 that had died due to a faulty drawer. I had to send the Rega back to the manufacturer a year or two back because it stopped playing disks. Someone else I know had the same fault. I just don't think the electronics are that great in the player.

    I agree, but as I mentioned in another post, the Marantz is too wide for my requirement.

    I discounted this when I first spotted it, but I'm going to put the Denon DCD-50 on the possible list.
