I had a Sony 777ES back in the day and it did not do a good job with Redbook CDs, but it was an SACD player. ;-)Y’all are bad news. Now I’m researching really nice vintage players as I don’t really love how my fancy SACD player does CD, and it’s no fun ripping new (cheap!) CDs to my server to play it over my DAC. FWIW I like how the Topping DAC handles CD better than my EMM Labs CDSA.
PM is an extra bad dude because he’s gotten me hooked on old DCC and MFSL gold CDs, because I’m boycotting new vinyl (too expensive for average pressings).
