Want Multi-Disc CD Player Recommendations

I'm looking for a carousel CD changer (I very firmly want that and not a single-disc player) and wanted some recommendations.  I'm looking for something very low budget, but still with good basic audiophile sound quality.

I just HAD a Sony that was modified by Tube Research Labs and sounded great, but when I took it in to get repaired they said it had been modified so dramatically that everything was sealed off and they couldn't even get to the right parts to fix it, so it's a goner - it served me well for a long time. 

Looking for something somehow approaching that level of sound quality, but again VERY low budget.  Any recommendations?  I have my eye on a like-new Rotel RCC-1055, but will I be disappointed in that? Thanks!


Amazon shows an Onkyo, Integra, and a Sony changer. They all might have a different flavor but even cheap CD players can sound very good. 

+1 the integra cdc 3.4--i've owned lots of multidisc changers (rotel, sony, yam, arcam, denon) and the integra has been the most reliable--nice quiet mechanism and pretty good sounding

I went thru around 9 players before getting and loving the sound of the Onkyo Integra 3.4 six disc carousel.

New: fresh laser, they get weak, if buy used, confirm low hours.

It does NOT play SACDs, so, main system I got a used Sony xa5400 ES with low hours, single player, kinda slow, but sounds terrific.

Happily using Onkyo in another system.

these may bore you to death, but there is a lot of shared wisdom there
