"I connected the player via coax to the nearest DAC, and have been enjoying Bob Kenmotsu on saxophone while putting the CDT-8 Pro through its paces. Upsampling works great, the controls are very responsive, the build quality of the player and the remote (battery access aside) is impressive, the feet are very well designed, and most important: the sound is fantastic! All is well here in CD Land"
Glad to hear your enjoying your CDT-8; I've had my CDP-9 for almost 6 months, I love it. Virtually all of my CDs sound better; whether it's the constant speed player, the ESS DAC, or the ultra low jitter, I don't know. Everything is indeed well in CD Land!
