Well I have the Philips CD-880 cdp that I grabbed from Warlocks1 hooked up and running.
I'll keep this review short and simple...my social skills are very limited.
Anyway this unit is remarkable. Manufactured circa 1990, this unit is built like a tank..at least 20 lbs. It has both digital and analogue outputs so I hooked up both to my H/K 320 to do a comparison via input switching through the H/K. Warlocks mentioned that he had not used the digital outputs of this unit which is a shame. Using the H/K's dac's the mids and lows were much, much more detailed and and natural sounding then the analogues. The highs just sounded..well cleaner..crisper. Using the analogue outputs, it sounded muddled in comparison. I am very impressed with the sound of the Philips and although I have an outboard Adcom dac unit coming, I'm not so sure that there can be much of an improvement sonically. We'll see.
Only annoyance so far is that the player is a little quick once in a while when selecting tracks from the remote...it has a tendency to clip the beginning of the selected track. It doesn't clip when playing a whole CD through and I can live with that. Overall, I am very pleasently surprised with the Philips.
By the way. For the comparison I used Cobalt interconnects and digital coax cable. The brand of coax I'm not sure of but it is silver color braided and looks to be of quality. I purchased it here on the forum a year or so ago.
Forgot to mention..using the H/K as a pre/pro. The Adcom 5400 is doing all the amplification.
