I agree with Jtinn, the Phillip's was a means to an end.
My Phillips no longer plays SACD, something to do with the chip. EMM Labs can not repair this particular chip, and Phillips is not sending replacements. Yes redbook still sounds amazing as do my DVD's. But the Phillips is now worthless for SACD. I will in the future get the CDSD for SACD and CD, and keep the Phillips for DVD.
We are all reluctant to tell of our Phillips woes because some might think of it as a negative to Mr. Meitner's gear. Nothing could be further from the truth. IMO it is still the best sounding.
If you have a Phillips SACD 1000 that works, EMM Labs may still be upgrading. My recommendation would be to go with the CDSD.
I am looking forward to Tireguys CDSD update.
