anyone use the DVD-5000 as primarily CD player with analog output? I am considering getting one and would be interested in opinions.

My 10-year old DVD-5000 went from my audio-video system to my stereo system about 3-4 years ago. It has played DVDs or CDs more than a thousand times.

Most of my CDs were bought for content and would not sound great on any equipment. On my best CDs the quality is about that of good but not great LPs. From me this is very high praise. It is not as good as some multi-kilobuck Cd-only players but it is good, much better than the 2-channel-audio-uber-alles faction will admit.

Unless you're getting it for like $10, I wouldn't bother. It's an 11 year old player.

Why not get something that can play all formats, and will definitely have a better picture with DVD's?
