What is equal to the Rega Apollo for less money?

I am replacing a 20 year old CD player. I have read the major reviews of the Rega Apollo CD player, and several positive reviews from fellow members. I would like to have input as to what current CD player may be equal or almost equal to the sound and performance of the Rega for less money. I like the appearance of the Rega, but not some of its features, but I could live with them. Unfortunately Rega's recent price increase has made it less affordable for me (Though, there have been several good offerings on this website.) I currently have a Creek 5350SE Classic integrated amp; a pair of Silverline Prelude II speakers and Analysis Plus Oval 12 speaker wire. My current CD player is the Sonographe SD-1 and the interconnect cable is the Audio Magic Spellcaster II. All are plugged into an Audio Prism Power Wedge 116 power line conditioner. I do not have a Rega dealer that is close enough for me to audition the player.... Thank you, Jim
I would agree with Ekobesky about Cambridge players being a good value. However, my experiences with three different Cambridge players belies the assertion they are well built. All three of mine were trouble prone and developed problems that required their replacement within two to three years of purchase.
A friend had two Cambridge players and both of them broke. He had them repaired and they broke again. They had the crappy Phillips drives in them of course.
That's the problem...the drives. Everything around them is solid and the remote is a brick. I can say that mine has been in regular use for over four years without a hitch but that's just me.

All the more reason to spring for the a Rega -- one less thing to go wrong.
Many thanks for the responses. I appreciate the advice offered by those who answered the post so far. It looks like the Rega Apollo wins....by almost a knock out. Thanks Jim
Not to rain on anyone's parade, but I found the Apollo to be a bit lean in the bass. It did not sound any better or worse than several players in the same price range, just a bit different. I preferred the Marantz 8001 and the jolida with upgraded tubes. The Onkyo 7555 is a much better value for money, imo.
