My CD player is malfunctioning so I was looking online at what's out there. It seems that all the high-end CD players are made for just a single disc. A changer is so convenient and I can't help but wonder why people would opt for a single disc unit- other than there's less things to go wrong I guess.

So, can someone bring me up to speed on CD players? I have a 220wpc Peachtree stereo amp and Golden Ear Triton 2 speakers. I see one can spend a small fortune on a CD player. Are they noticeably better than a $300 unit? Thanks.
