So, I have found. an old portable CD player, however I question the quality of the DAC and if it is worth using. I understand CDs provide the best sounding audio compared to mp3 etc, so I was wondering if a 1 bit DAC is simply garbage (this player is old), or if 1, 16, 24, etc bit DACs just present the sound differently. I have attempted to research this however there are many mixed responses. I would like to use it with a headphone amp with the line out.
It is a Sony sports Discman esp.
