Okay here goes: I have this this really old CD player from 1988 and this DVD player from back when they were new. The Cd player is a Pioneer PD-M450 changer with 6 slots and the DVD player is this Proscan model that came around back whenever DVD players were new. I am planning to upgrade to a new cd player in the future, but for now I want to find out which one of these two would be good for me now. So does the old cd player compare to the old dvd player? Which one do you think would be best for CD PLAYBACK ONLY? I am asking because I "think" that the old cd player sounds better. It seems more coherent and less harsh in the high end. The low end might be just a little lighter but overall I think it is better. Can anyone validate my simple analysis? By the way, the old cd player is a totall tank and has lasted the last 16 years(My age too) perfectly fine. The DVD player hasn't been so lucky. It is kinda glitchy and freezes sometimes. One thing that sucks though is that the old cd player has no remote, but the dvd player does.
