Panasonic DP-UB9000 As A Standalone CD Player?

How is this Panasonic as an audiophile quality CD Player at the $1,000 or less price range? Would it equal or better things like the Marantz CD6005 player for sound quality?

This Panasonic is well known and respected as a top rated UHD Bluray Player but does it have the audiophile chops for CD playback?

How does the Panasonic DP-UB820 compare to the Marantz CD6005 in sound quality for CD playback?

Maybe the Pioneer LX500 Would Have Better CD Playing Quality

Too Much to ask if the Panasonic DP-UB820 could compete with the Marantz CD6006. My goal here is to explore a very good CD player for under $1,000. The 6006 is hard to beat. I wondered if a better built UHD Bluray player for under $1,000 might have quality internal components to be an overlooked but effective option. Playback would be via coax, analogue or optical but NOT hdmi.

The Panny DP-UB9000 has

The Panny DP-UB9000 has better specs than the CD6006.
At this level, it is all a matter of taste.

The Sony ES UBP-X1100ES...

...is half the cost of the Panasonic DP-UB9000. It also has a 3 year warranty and SACD playback features.

Love mine.
