Old thread, but useful info.
I was about to buy a used Sony D-E561 because of the 40 second anti-skip and optical out. Then I saw this thread, and learned that players with 40 seconds anti-skip typically compress their music.
So then I looked into your D-DJ1000 player.
Looks good. But how do you know that 1 is uncompressed, and 2 is compressed? And how do you know how many seconds the anti-skip is for?
I am looking at page 13 of the manual, and can't find specif info that 1 is uncompressed, and 2 is compressed. Nor how long the anti-skip is for.
Overall this D-DJ1000 player looks like it has a few other cool features compared to the D-E561, like the ability to use rechargeable batteries. And display CD text info.
