Amazon.com has Onkyo C-7030 Audiophile Grade Compact Disc Player for $139 with free shipping. Thanks SJGUY99

Featured User Comment: The Onkyo C-7030 is indeed an audiophile quality CD player. One of the highlights of this player is the DAC (digital to audio converter) in reproducing sound that audio files (FLAC, MP3, etc) played on portable devices can't compare with. The only disc formats that might be even better than this player are SACD and DVD-Audio. -Richard8655

A great deal on a well built audiophile quality standalone CD player with an excellent DAC, the Wolfson WM8178 (192kHz/24 bit). These are getting rare, especially at this price, but for those of us who are old fashioned and like to listen to actual CD's, you will appreciate the sound quality this unit brings out. Link below to Amazon and Best Buy, both at $139.99.

It's superior to any mp3 player. The reviews speak for themselves.

If I could negative rep the OP for making me feel like an old man well before my time, I would negative rep the ever-loving snot out of him.

I don't need this but +rep for a cool audiophile find.

Most people don't understand this stuff at all; it definitely does make a difference. Few people have listening setups today (or experience) to know the difference

But I have to agree that this is just no longer in the digital audiophile band either -- those wanting physical media have moved on to SACD and DVD-A -- both formats seem somewhat doomed due to limited availability. Though I can play SACDs on my 1st-generation PS3 (later ones can't do it ) and DVD-A's on 2 Yamaha players I got -- one at Goodwill for $20.

It seems the new trend is FLAC (high-resolution, not just converted CDs) or DSD audio downloads (legal, paid downloads, I mean) which you then play though whatever computer and DAC equipment you have. Either way it's complicated and probably much more trouble than most in the MP3-generation would want to understand at the moment (but maybe in time...)

[Edit: I'm not sure if I am allowed to post a link for another site here; and I'm not trying to promote anything or get any benefit from it, but for an example of some cool things going on in digital audio devices, I'd suggest IndieGogo Geek Wave.]

where do you think the FLAC comes from?

reminds me of all the physical media haters who just say 'my downloaded rips are free and look the same, bluray is stupid'.

Almost NO music I really like was ever released on SACD or DVD-A and has yet to be released on high res downloads (and probably never will).

If I listened to music on a home stereo system this would be great for me. TU OP...
