I have a 10 year old Marantz CD50SE and a brand new Philips DVDR 890. I use the digital out on both of them to my Marantz SR4200. So how is it that the 890 is cr*p at CDs (compared to my CD50SE)? What more is there than reading digital PCM data off the disc and sending via the digital out? No part of which should really be prone to any sound altering interference since it's all digital right? Baffled... Michael.
