    I was thinking about upgrading my cheap Sony CD player to the Arcam CD72 because of the iminent arrival of my Denon 2802 reciever..... I've had a thought however, why not try my 717 DVD player as my CD player for the time being to save on money and space. My question is:

    Is the Pioneer 717 up to the task as a short(ish) term solution?

    Cheers

    should be okay... comparable to a sub £200 cd player?

    you could also try connecting the dvd player optically for cd playing duties rather than using the usual stereo phonos..

    assuming the dacs in the denon amp are better than in the pioneer dvd. should be...

    Should be fine, Dv717 was a fine DVD player for audio reply in its day. Best thing to do is to give it a try on your system and see what you think....

    Thanks for the comments - I rekon I'll give it a go. It should be fine until I eventually upgrade my player.....

    I have the Pioneer DV717 and it's nowhere near as good as my 10 years old Sony CD player for playing CDs.
