Philips CD-80 digital output quality?
I'm trying to decide whether to keep my Philips CD-80. While it has a physically very solid transport, I don't think the topic of jitter had become important yet when it was designed.
So, I'm wondering how it compares with modern devices at various prices. Would even an inexpensive but overachieving device like an Oppo 980, which I'm looking into for DVDs, SACDs and DVD-A, be just as good feeding a moderate priced DAC ($1-2k)? Any feedback will be appreciated.
