Portable Sources w/Digital Output Listing

post #1 of 185
Thread Starter 
Following on the thread I began to discover which PCDPs (vintage or new) could be enjoyed with the DAC facility of my iBasso D1, I thought it might be useful to compile a list of known PCDPs and DAPs that function portably (i.e. on battery power) featuring optical or coaxial outputs.

So feel free to reply and I'll add them to list!

I just grabbed a panasonic CT-540 off ebay last week, which has optical out. Great thread idea!

Does the optical output of the CT540 function on battery power or only when connected with the AC adapter, as Kramer noted about his Panasonics?

Can someone tell me if the optical out of the older pcdps are indeed better than the new ones? I read somewhere that the older models without esp/antishock (or fist generation selectable esp) have significantly better optical out, is this true?

I ordered it last thursday, so it should be here in the next few days. I'll let you know about the AC Adapter and optical when I get it...well, I guess I should get on ordering that D1 now so I can use the optical

I think you'll be very pleased by the D1's versatility and sound quality. Mine is approaching 250 hours on the burn-in and it's still evolving nicely. It already sounds superb with both my MacBook and Sony D-EJ2000.

But I'm also looking forward to rolling in the AD8066 opamp and AD8397 buffers, which HiFlight and jamato8 say elevates it on par with the Xin Reference.

Updated with the Cowon Q5.

Do any of the Archos players have digital output?

Through the DVR dock, so if someone gets the dock pinout, someone could make an SPDIF out cable or something.

Do portable DVD players count too?

Hmmm...will it play with the LCD screen shut?

I think about portability here as being able to move freely about with the player stowed in a bag, pocket, etc.
