cAMBRIDGE 840 IS GREAT ON RED BOOKS AND BEATS THE FICKLE SCD. I have its cousin xa777es which has 5.1 outputs also. Having recently heard the 840 I can say it best's the Sony's

The SCD-1 is a very nice looking unit and built like a tank. That alone gives it some value and the built like a tank thing does translate to some performance gains.
It was a better than average player in its day but it no longer is a real contender and hasn't been for some time. Whether it be SACD or redbook.
I ordered mine already so hopefully it does a good job, and I don't think you can ever win anyway technology keeps changing
plus this player was way over my budget but I figured for the money it was the best I could score, and I could always use it as as transport later on and get a wadia 150 dac if need be in
a few years anyway thanks for the info greatly appreciated.
