WTB cheap :) working HDCD-compatible CD player

I have a fair number of "HDCD" CDs but not a single player that can play HDCDs as such. I'd like to hear some HDCD CDs as HDCD; so I am looking for such a player.
It needs to be working and it needs to be cheap (including shipping, which I realize isn't particularly cheap any more!).

Let me know by PM if you have one that you'd be interesting in selling and your asking price.
Hoping to do business with a well established Polk Forums denizen (i.e., no newbies, please).

Thanks for your consideration!

    Oh, got several gizmos that can spin those little polycarbonate disks discs. In fact, I took an inventory last week, to see if I had one that would play HDCDs -- and I came up empty :p Crazy, huh?


    @clipdat; thanks for the PM. Replied to.

    yes, actually, if not ironically -- I have the model number in an e-mail but I don't remember it off the top of my head.

    Won't cross paths with its current owner for a couple of weeks yet -- he actually has a few items from my hifi lending library to return, so we need to do a prisoner exchange of sorts... well, I guess not an exchange, as much as a drop. :#
