I use an RCA Laserdisc player. Which works surprisingly well.
My main one is dead, my other two are universal.
They sound ok, but those mechanisms always sound like they're about to fly apart.
Naim CD5 for CD only.
Pioneer BDP-80FD for DVD, BluRay, SACD etc.
I have a Sony UHP-H1, which I bought new for $300. They are discontinued, but I see third-party sellers now getting up to $500 for them online. Plays SACD, CD, DVD-A, BD, DVD, plus USB files, internet, WiFi, etc. Upscales video to 4K. Direct DSD output from SACD via HDMI (which works with my NAD M51 DAC), or transcodes to 24/192 PCM output via RCA analog jacks, or 24/48 via S/PDIF. I hardly use it anyway. I only own a few SACD's, and always rip all my CD's to AIFF files for computer playback on my two main systems and portable players.
Mine dedicated CD SACD SONY Super audio cd player SCD-XE800,great player
Plays all my cd collection,have Sony Blu ray
Disc player and Sony DVD recorder but mostly use Sony XE-800 player been a great machine..
Mostly when they’re playing laserdiscs. Not too bad for CD’s
Another Oppo 105D here
What I'm using as my "main" CD player, is actually a "cupholder". It's sitting right there beside me at knee-level, next to the soundcard and the motherboard.
I can only get to the "real" player, when I can tear myself away from this Distraction Device, to grab the Oppo remote...so, I'd guess you'd say, that's my 3rd "main" player.
(My 2nd "main" CD player? It's a Mazda. )
CD player only. It's a Sony that is getting a bit long in the tooth; I fear for its life...
CD only, no SACD.
I have both, a dedicated CD player and a universal player. I usually play CDs on the dedicated player.
CD Only, but plays HDCD - naim CDX2.2
That gave me a chuckle. I was just re-telling the "cupholder" story to some kids in the IT department last week. LOL.
I have a dedicated CD player to play my CDs....Onkyo C-7030. I use it to save wear-and-tear on universal players, the Oppo 205 or the Pioneer Elite DV59AVi.
I use a Oppo UHD-203 Universal player. For movies, the output is HDMI into the processor.
For CD's, it is a digital output to the Peachtree iNova, using the 203 strictly as a transport.
2 Sony Blu-Ray players on HT duty, an older Denon CDP on standby and a Sony DVD/CD/SACD on TV3
I guess I need a bumper sticker on my Mazda then, saying, "My other CD player is a cupholder". Bamboozle the Millenials.
Dedicated server for all playback. Universal players (Oppo) used for ripping.
After a laser replacement I'm happily still rockin' the...
Primary is a modified Sony Playstation 1 which only plays CDs so it's dedicated and but I've heard it also plays games so maybe other.
In order to buy DACs also have a Pioneer DV563a used as transport which plays CD, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD but no Blue Ray.
Also a Magnavox MDV2100 with the top cover removed that plays DVDs and CDs.
I have both. I have an Oppo BDP-93 for SACD and DVD-A playback, and a Sony CDP-507ESD for CDs.
My CD Player (Arcam Alpha 9) is Redbook only and HDCD. I play SACD's via my Yamaha Blu-Ray player.
Dedicated CD player.
