We use professional grade Denon 961's.  They don't have all the features
one would possibly want, but they are built like tanks.  Like Martin we
gave up on Tascam and Technics long ago.

The light is on.

we use inexpensive Sony CD players that are stacked. if they break down,
for whatever reason, we get a quick replacement. forget tascam, etc.
they are all not nearly as good as the old days and haven't proven to
take the abuse any better than less expensive CD players.
love having things on hard drive. get a clean rip before the CD goes out
in circulation to announcers. playback problems for audio files now rare

We are having terrible skipping problems with our CD players, Tascam
professional models, in master control.  Our new friendly engineer says
CD players skip and that he spoke with other stations and Jazzworks at
NAB and people are using these and they are skipping.  Remember when
meant something good?

But I say this is VERY bad and I'm wondering if anyone has something
that is
working.  We will eventually be on hard drive but that is not happening
month so I'm looking for a solution.

Also does anyone know if stacking them 3 in a row is a problem.  We turn
them off at night and are really only running them for 5 hours straight,
24.  We have some old Re-Vox, in production that work pretty well, but
are almost 20 years old and have some mechanical problems.  Of course
don't make those anymore.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
