By the way, nice posting number "555"
yeah, jude said he'd send me a d555 when i got 555 posts. i'm waiting!

i love the sound of the d777 out of the headphone jack, and i am wondering if these other players are better and have as little noise as the d777. my old d33 player (still works) sounds okay, but with a bit more noise.

redshifter,
I believe...the older player has a bit more noise..but you can't really hear it. D777 is one very smooth PCDP, I love it.

I forgot that my friend borrowed the D-777 from me several days ago. So I can only compare D-777 with the other two from my impression.

D-25 has a more sparkling high range than D-303, and D-303 has a more sparkling high range than D-777. While D-25 has a warmer mid range than D-777, and D-777¡¯s mid range is warmer than D-303. As to the low range, D-303 is the strongest, while D-777 comes the second and D-25 the last. D-25¡¯s low range is tighter and speedier than the other two and it sure can beat D-777 with regard to the depth. Among the three, D-25¡¯s sound is the most transparent, D-303 comes the second and D-777 the last. That also suggests that D-25 and D-303 are richer in details than D-777.

D-25 seems more balanced than D-303 and D-777 and it¡¯s more spacious / open than the other two. I have to confess that D-25¡¯s headphone out is the best. I like the sound from D-303 nevertheless. I found that D-303 sounds a little more energetic than the other two somehow because its sound is a little more buoyant, speedy.

Since D-25 doesn¡¯t have a bass boost or the like, I would like to point out that D-303 doesn¡¯t enhance its high range while its mega bass is turned on. D-777 enhances both the high range and low range.

I used mdr-e888 for the comparison.

Netsurfer and Soronian,
My D-E900 has 1 bit system, how about your 905? Is it dual one bit? Thanks for telling me. This discman looks very beutuful man. It can be a nice decor to my apt.

That's an interesting question. I can't find any official references to a "dual DAC" system in the E905. I've been taking it from the word-of-mouth references.

The brief manual describes the conversion as "1-bit Quartz Time-Axis Control"

So I don't have a definitive answer as to it being dual-bitstream or not.

hmmmm. {b}very{/b} interesting. what i like about the 777 headphone out is the total lack of noise and the flat response. to my ears it also has a very wide soundstage, much better than the panasonics i auditioned, as well as a better treble (cymbols, etc.). having a silent background for music is one of the things that sold me on cds when they first came out, and the 777 delivers. that the d25s has a BETTER headphone out than the d777 makes me very interested all of a sudden. thanks for the in-depth comparison.
