RE: Marantz CD52 Mk2 Vs modern Blu Ray players

I have asked a similar question on another forum and lots of people say a blu-ray will be fine and will play sacds and dvds as well, even a cheap Sony like the 490 will play them and even 3D DVDs if you want, make sure it has optical output. The Sony is only £80. 

Listen to the music, not the hifi.

RE: Marantz CD52 Mk2 Vs modern Blu Ray players

A £60 LG BD player from Curry's will still play CDs but the audio won't be in the same street as the Marantz CD player without an external DAC. Also I'm pretty sure just any random blu ray player can't play SA CDs (but yes the Sony does)

AEX > AVI DM10 + BK Gemini II sub; Visual: Samsung BD-C5500 > Panasonic TX-L47ET5B.

Head-fi: various, but most often Sennheiser HD-580 or Audio Technica ATH-M50X

RE: Marantz CD52 Mk2 Vs modern Blu Ray players

DVD Players normally use switching power supply circuits while almost all CDPs use transformers (or toroidal Transformer on better ones) for power supply.  The problem of using switching power supply is its noise and it will affect the qulaity of the audio and digital outputs.
