I used to be a two channel audio enthusiast until I "accidently" dicovered home theater when I plugged my stereo VCR into my preamp in 1995. At the time I had an Adcom GCD575 CD player, but replaced it with a DVD player when I moved into digital home theater. I now use a Sony DVP-S7700 for both DVDs and CDs and the Adcom has gone unused for several years now. My question is whether or not a DVD player has comparable performance playing CDs as a dedicated CD player of similar quality. I realize the answer can be very subjective but value the opinions of those on this forum.
