I needed a CD player to use with a headphone amp and a pair of AKG K702 headphones. Based on the positive review in Stereophile, I purchased the Marantz CD5004, and I am very happy with the sound quality I'm getting via analog outputs. It's a marked improvement over the Marantz CD-67 SE II player (about 10 years old) that it replaced--clearer midrange, less grainy highs, and easier to use.
Before I got the CD5004, I bought an open-box Sony S570 BluRay player, but its drive action was so noisy as to be completely useless as an audio player. I understand that all of the Sx70 players and their Sx80 successors have the same affliction.
