Actually, that's exactly what it does best. CD payback is good, SACD is excellent, but with a first-rate digital cable (NBS 0 RCA-RCA) through a really fine external DAC (dCS Purcell and Elgar) it out-performed my Levinson 37 (using a balanced NBS 0 cable). One caution--it's the transport part of the Sony that most requires the extended break-in period. Don't expect this result before you've had 4-500 hours use.
