Does Sony DVP-S9000ES Feeds Digital Out For CD?

I currently have a SACD1000 which doesnt feed digital out when I play regular CDs. Does the Sony DVP-S9000ES feeds digital out when playing regular CD? Which unit sounds better on redbook, DVP-S9000ES or SACD1000?
Yes, the 9000ES sends a 44.1/16 signal to the digital output. You must set this feature with the on-screen menu.
It also outputs true 24/96, enabled by on-screen menu.
The 9000ES makes an excellent transport, with the right DAC. I currently use an EAD 7000 III.
More input please...
