Perhaps one of the best kept secrets in the world of cd players. After searching for a used cd player that I could enjoy listening to, that had few drawbacks when compared to even today's new models. I discovered a beautiful Adcom GCD 575 circa 1990. I have tried Arcam, Sony ES, Magnavox/Philips, even a modded Nakamichi CDP 2A. None thrilled me as much as this Adcom. It just sounds right with it's warmth and musicality. And with all CD's. Although all are great sounding, I advise the 1990 model or newer. These have a few upgraded parts over the earlier models.
