    Hello All, This is my first posting and I am looking for some helpful views. I currently use an Audiolab 8200CD with the Audiolab 8200A amplifier, it is these two items which I MAY replace. The speakers are Tannoy Revolution 6F floorstanders (and I won't be replacing these). The question I have been asking myself is should I consider going up the price scale to something which 9 years ago cost around £1,700 (and has held it's price and regard very well to the present day) - Roksan Caspian M2 CD player, or should I consider something more recent (and considerably less expensive), with all the improvements and hugely positive reviews which that entails - Marantz CD6006 UK model ?
    So, considering the developments & improvements which have taken place during the past 9 years, which would you suggest woulb be the best improvement (I will consider the amplifier separately on another occasion depending on my decision on which CD player (if any) I choose as a replacement.
    My listening is wide ranging - 70's rock, folk, classical, baroque, 70's roots reggae and electronica from the 90's to the present.
    I hope this will stimulate your thoughts and I look forward to reading your views. Thank you in advance.
