I'm putting together a 'new' 2-channel system that consists of a McCormack DNA-1 (R1), an Audio Research SP14, and various other components. I find I am in need of a CD transport\/player. I have a Technics SL-PD947 in another system in a different city that I've had for a very long time and it has always performed flawlessly. I've found a few of these on flea-bay for $100.00 or less and I could certainly order another, but I'm wondering if I might make a more informed choice.\n\nRegarding the new CD\/Nework servers, I've never really been inclined to learn much about these newfangled units. I guess I don't understand the need for a whole separate unit, when I can simply use an RCA to 1\/8" patch cable and just plug in my phone to stream from Spotify or Pandora. I do plan on a Roon or Tidal subscription in the future, though I imagine I can access it the same way as my phone - or even hook up a bluetooth receiver If was so inclined. Please correct me if I am wrong here. I may also hook up a TV for video in the future.\n\nA unit such as the Marantz ND8006 offers a lot of technological wizardry, but why do I need any of it? What am I missing?\n\nA any rate, should I decide to go the simple CD\/DVD\/BluRay route I have been looking at the following units:\n\nSony DVP-NS900V\nMarantz CD6006\nAdcom GCD 700\nTechnics SL-PD947\n\nI'd prefer a CD changer, but that's not a deal-breaker by any means.\n\nAny comments on these units or any other recommendations? What say you regarding my Network Streamer comments? Thanks.
