    Seen some good reviews. Still not sure the sound would be an improvement. I put my alpha 6 next to a newer cd73 which I bought for a friend and it didn't take much listening to realise the alpha 6 was a better player. Anyone compared the dv79 to a decent cd player. Would like to get one unit for both cd and dvd but if I am not going to get an improvment then maybe I need to spend even more?

    The only way to tell for sure if the DV79 will be a good enough CD player for you will be to get to a dealer and have a demo. Better still is to try and have a home demo of the DV79.
    Other options would be an exdemo/second hand DV27 at just under £1000 or if you can stretch the budget a DV29 at around £1600. I have seen a post saying that the DV29 was nearly as good a CD player as their CD33!
