CD-Player - what's coming next?

I did a quick search with Google:
The Denon DN-S5000 was introduced in 2003, the original Pioneer
CDJ-1000 is 4 years old and even Numark's CDX is already one year old (although obviously still busy growing up).

What's coming next?
Both Pioneer and Denon have only been upgrading their lower end players (DN-S1000,...) but nothing seems to be happening with the top models.

I like the CDX but am concerned about reliability and portability. Second is the DN-S5000 because of the creative features but the product must be close to end-of-line and could use an update/upgrade (the performance of the processor seems to be limiting new and improved features). The CDJ-1000MKII is solid and reliable but in my opinion lacks innovation and modern features and I think I prefer the moving platter.

A reason why they don't change the top model(s): Why change something when it's your most perfect model?

I don't consider any of the current top models perfect. There is a lot of room for improvement.

I didn't say that they are perfect. And yes, there is room for improvement, but: the top models are made that way, nothing is perfect, and every made tries to make their models perfect. The improvement comes in other (new) models, but if you just released one, you don't call it back to improve it. First you want to sell the product!

If not perfect, how would you make it perfect
Let the BASS be louder

That's your opinion, it may sound rude. But the sales of these machines are so high, i'm sure Pioneer wouldn't have expected that.

The machine is very well sold, and I guess that's the main reason why it isn't replaced yet Winking my eye
Same story with the Technics TT SL-1200MKII, that one wasn't replaced to, untill a little time ago.

well, if we buy our music directly from the artists or small labels, the industry has a problem - not the music or the musicians. but I think the mainstream will always go to mainstream places. Once those were large record stores and chains and now something like the iTunes Music Store.

yeah? and whats wrong with not having stores likeThe record shop? surely thats jus something everyone is/was used to.. and with new better alternatives it will just take a while for people to readjust.. Once readjusted no one will be complaining.

miss iets innoverends een cd speler waar men zowel de platter al draaiende of stilstaand kan gebruiken om bij te sturen.

zo kan je zelf kiezen wanneer je preciezie nodig hebt en vinyl feeling

(zou eig prima update zijn voor de cdj 1000, want eerlijk gezegd vind ik de designs van alle andere spelers maar zus en zo...)
