i am using the Coaxial digital output of my second-generation Toshiba DVD player as a transport both to make recordings on my Sony MDS-JB940 Minidisk player and to feed the DA's in my STR-DA777ES. Which got me to thinking, I am putting all this trust into my Toshiba transport to do these important things... how do I know it's pulling ALL the information off the disk? Does anybody know something I can do to check it's quality, or is there a really big difference in transport quality from one player to another? This is a second generation DVD player so it isn't built nearly as cheaply as many of today's, and it retailed for 600-800 dollars when new. Any input??
