Good CD players include models such as the Marantz CD6005 and Oppo BDP-105, notes ConsumerSearch.com. Although there are drastic differences in prices, as they range between $100 and $1,200, as of 2015. However, in general, there is hardly a difference in sound quality from units that cost less.
Some factors that change the cost of a CD player include its overall features and usability. Although the sound quality remains that same for mid-tier and high-grade units, some more expensive models have features that may include an audio-video receiver. However it is also important to note, no matter the type of CD player being used, if the speakers are not good quality the sound also decreases in quality.
The Marantz CD6005 offers great sound quality, and at a more affordable price point than other top-tier players. It is capable of playing all types of formats including the CD-R, CD-W, MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV. There is also a USB port that allows a smartphone to connect and play music.
The top CD player on the list is the Oppo BDP-105. Selling for $1,200 a unit, it is the most expensive model. However it does offer several other features such as digital-to-audio conversion and 7.1 analog jacks.
