I know I already replied off line but one other suggestion would be  
for your engineer to check in with the folks on the Pubtech board.  
There have been a number of recent posts on CD players and I know the  
Tascam and Denon rack models were subject to extensive discussions.  
One other thing to be aware of, most professional Cd players these  
days are heavily software dependent. They are like mini computers and  
just like all our computers most of these machines are subject to  
software upgrades to help fix the many issues that creep up once  
products are on the market. My experience in recent years is that a  
lot of these issues are not mechanical but software related. As far  
as stacking the units, that is really only an issue if you don't have  
adequate air circulation and the units get too hot. I've rarely seen  
this as an issue. The only other thing would be to back up what  
Martin said about dumping the Tascam's. They have not been well  
received at many of the stations that have them installed. The  
Denon's really have become the standard for most stations.
