I looking for a budget cd player(under 300), which has low mechanical noise spinning the cd disc.I owned new NAD C525BEE, new NAD C515BEE, both have noisy disc spinning, very annoying when you listen music at moderate level. The cd discs were clear.Very interesting, my very cheap Panasonic dvd player has extremly low noise spinning the discs compared with these NAD cd players.
  What is your experience, can you tell me which budget player work silently? Thank you for reply

My Cambridge 540C V2 is inaudible at anything over half a metre or so, even with the volume turned to zero.

I certainly can the Sony XB930 is a fantastic cd player originally retailed at 300.00 and can now be picked up second hand for less than 70.00 would recommend keeping an eye out on the av forum (different website) ebay and google hi fi for sale, can't remember the name of the website but it's the first result. It has great sound but also there is not the noisy disc spinning so even at moderate levels you will not hear that.

This is something that really annoys me and which is going to be part of my own selection process. I listen to a lot of solo piano music and find this kind of noise totally irritating and unacceptable. This was one of the things I didn't like about the Cambridge 740C. I believe Yamaha's new mechanisms isolate the noise very well, but you are looking at a minimum of just under £400 for their new CD-S700 (I think thats the right model number) so its not really budget.

I think at the budget end it's pot luck, even within the same model. My 640c v2 was silent, I've heard complaints that other samples were really noisy.

Arcam's CD73, on eBay for circa £250. I have a CD72T and I can't hear the mechanism at all.

That price is for a brand new CD73 (if you're quick.)
