Rega Apollo CD ranked class A Stereophile component
If your only wanting the Apollo R for a transport why not look at buying just a transport?
Only an idea of course but for example Apollo R 550 pounds where a chunk of that money goes on the dac section or cyrus CD T for 600 pounds where all the money goes on making a good transport. Another choice would be musical fidelity M1 transport for 600 pounds.
I have not listened to any of these but I would imagine a dedicated transport of the same value would do a better job than a cdp.
As I say just an idea and you may just like the Apollo as it will fit nicely in with the rest of your system and look very nice which is fine also.
