Parasound C/DC-1500

Hi,

I am about to acquire an used Parasound C/DC-1500 CD changers made in 1997 with coaxial digital output. It seems that it has the belt drive mechanism from CEC/Sanyo. I am going to use it as a transport.

If you had this Parasound CD changer before, I would be most grateful if you could give me your comment on its sound quality as well as possible upgrade to the digital output.

Thanks for reading this post.

That Parasound absolutely does NOT have the CEC belt drive transport, but rather a totally mundane standard Sanyo laser/mech. Not bad, but nothing special at all. Functionally identical to the Rotel carousel changer, with just superficial upgrades. It & the Rotel are one of the more reliable carousel changers out there, but there is nothing else to recommend them.
