Thanks for the response, Sc53. I know little about the Jolida other than, unlike nearly all cdps, it employs no op-amps. Phillip's chips and it's five pin tube drive stage do the amplification. It has a simple circuit design, and I prefer simple circuits and simple systems.
I got into Jolida with one of it's totally unrelated early models, the 603, when someone brought over his 601. I had a Audiogon Best Buy marked Sony ES model at the time. It took just one song. I was totally blown away buy the spaciousness, airyness, and liquidity of the Jolida. I bought one the next day. Unfortunately the early cheap models were failure prone. I'm happy to say Mark Allen of Jolida has changed his company's mission away from cheap great sound to dependable greater sound. The JD100 doesn't even resemble the old stuff. There is no plastic around. The Sony transport has been replaced by Phillips.
Mark Allen told me he went for the Phillips chips over the usual Burr Brown, because he was aiming for a more linear response from his machine. Well done Mark.
