I am putting together a second system and would like to learn more about Rotel CD players. Both the RCD1572MKII and CD14MKII have caught my eye. I am not convinced the 1572 brings that much more to the party other than balanced outputs, which I do not need.
This CD player would be paired with Fritz speakers and an First Watt F7 amp to start.
I would also like an honest opinion about utilizing a $1,000 CD player with these types of components. My main system uses a PS Audio PWT and a Mojo Audio Mystique DAC so I know the value of getting all the detail one can from a source. Would a Rotel CD player be a weak link?
Alternative ideas are welcome but must be a CD player and not separate Transport and DAC - space is limited and budget is less than $2,000.
Thanks for listening!
