Which Philips is the best ?

which was the best player built by Philips ?

850 ? 880 ? 960 ?

850 has large alpanumeric display but bitstream ?
880 has silvercrown but no alpanumeric.
960 has very small display and which DAC ?

Did Philips make a transport ?

Is there an alternative transport / player on the used market around 300$ ?

Can somebody please post a pic of the Philips CD80 ?

Thanks, this looks a lot like the CD880, ist there any difference except missing DAC ?

No, but I not 100% sure -- I only know the CDD882 well.

Only the DAC chip and parts around it are omitted. Both CD880 and CD882 are based on the same chassis and PCB's etc. They are the same.

Bernhard 15th February 2004 05:30 PM

And which one is the best ? :confused:

850 ? 880 ? 960 ? All the same ?

By the way in my collection I have a 830 and via headphones ( Sennheiser HD430 & Beyer DT990) it sounds a little too warm, the mids are not open, kind of depressed, if I listen its like I can not breath, there's some pressure on my breast, don't know how to explain.
There is the plain 1541A inside.

Also I have 304mkII and 650 and both sound open and relaxed.
They have 1541 without A inside.


Did not compare yet via digital out.

In a week I will get the 880.

CD 304MKII has a nice alu chassis.
