Hello everyone! I am looking for a CD Player, my first, and I have a small range of options open to me. I have basically no A/V experience, which is why I'm posting here, because despite my interest, I still don't know what I'm talking about.

The few players I am looking at right now that are convenient for me to buy are:
the Technics SL-P370,
the Sony CDP-215 CD,
the Cambridge D500 (normal, not SE), and
the Denon DCD-620.

These are all in similar price ranges, but from what I've been able to find, they're all at least decent. I'm not able to audition any of these, unfortunately.
I might want to get two, to use different places or to have one to mess around with and transport, and get to know the inner workings, but perhaps I should just find a cheap one for that. I WOULD like to learn more, mainly about audio equipment, but I have to start somewhere
Can anyone give me some advice on what I might want to get? }

Buying a used CD player can be a crap shoot. I've bought used before, but I've been lucky.

What's the budget?

Are the players you listed currently for sale in your area?

Yep, these are listed locally. My budget is low, one of the reasons I'm looking for used. That being said, I might put in up to 80 bucks? The Cambridge D500 is being sold for $50, which is a huge deal off it's retail price, from what I could tell by poking around. The other ones are being sold for 20-30. Really very cheap, but I don't see much need for me to spend more at this point. In the future, definitely.

At this price point I would skip the used CDP, which will probably break or malfunction in no time at all and go straight to the PC/DAC route. You can pick up a cheap USB DAC that will sound better than any of these CDPs for around 100 bucks or so.
