Although I have not heard the JD700A I'll chime in and say that the JD100 is a very solid performer. I have a modified JD100. Although I have other players, I've had it longer than any other piece in my system. Every time I think of selling it, I compare it to other better players, and it is close in performance. I use herbies tube dampers and have used it with several good aftermarket pc's. In general, for redbook, a multi format player will not outperform a dedicated cd player in the same price class and particularly within the same brand. However, I'm sure you already know that. But to get more solid feedback on a comparison of the two unit, I'd call one of the dealers, Response Audio, United Home Audio, or Underwood, and get their take on the comparison of the two on redbook.
