Default Arcam 70.2 or Philips CD880 as Transport?

Hello everyone. Seasons Greetings!

Was seeking opinions on which unit , Arcam delta 70.2 or the
Philips cd880 would be better for use as a transport.

Stock and modifying potential.

If I recall correctly? the Arcam uses a CDM4 and the Philips a CDM1 mk2 mechanism.
Can they both read CDR and CDRW?

Advice welcome.

Some of my cheap "Maggot Boxes" have trouble with CDs that I have burned. Granted, I use crap stock, and the lasers may be aging.

My CD-80 plays them, though.
