Welcome Charles to wbf.Hello longing,
Three highly praised CD transports that are 'reasonably ' priced I'll list them as how they are ranked by people have heard them.
1Pro-Ject RS2 CD BOX Transport.
2 Jay's Audio Lab CD T2 MK 3
3 P.S.Audio Perfect Wave CD/SACD Transport.
According to quite a few the Pro-Ject RS2 Transport is superb sounding and improves further with an optional linear power supply. I currently use an older generation P.S. Audio Perfect Wave Transport which has served me beautifully for 8 years. I will very likely purchase the Pro-Ject unit.l
Best of luck,
