I Found An Amazing CD Player - XBOX ONE

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

All I can say is wow. I haven't been around here in almost a year and have been enjoying my LCD-3s immensely in that time span. Lately I have started to tire of the aggressiveness of the gungnir/mjonir rig I've been running. I thought it may be the pc or sbt and that I should go out and find a CD player to play the hoards of CDs in my house collecting dust. I'm a huge gamer so the XBOX One was going to be in my home no matter what. I hooked up the xbox through optical out to the gungnir with little expectations for it. I fired up American Beauty and WOW I was blown away. The sibilance in Sugar Magnolia always bothered me but not any more. Unbelievable smooth and analog-like. My LCDs feel alive again. Very good on Microsoft for slipping this gem into their box. If any of you have the one, definitely give it a try. You may be surprised and end up with your primary CD player like me.

That is so weird, tried it on my Wii U and everything sounds like Mario theme song.

I hate to burst bubbles but the when outputting LPCM over optical there really isn't much to thank the transport for other than not skipping or otherwise have errors reading the disc.

yeah, the PS 2 was already known as a decent CD player.
