Bargain hunters in for some 'ChiFi' might want to check out the SMSL Official Store in AliExpress - they have a clearance section where old and used models are offered at advantageous prices. https://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/Clearance-item/3135026_514575252.html?spm=a2g1y.12024536.pcShopHead_1...

Re: CEX

RD regarded DVD players as generally having a good sound, and Primare are well-regarded. That player could be a bit of a bargain and you can always pick up a universal remote to run it.
