On a sound quality scale of 1 to 10, about a 3 IMO; not so hot. If it has a digital output, a high-quality external DAC could make a substantial improvement. There have been huge improvements in the DAC chipsets used in most CD players since then.
By comparison, a Cambridge Audio 350C would be maybe a 7, an OPPO BDP-93 would be an 8, and an OPPO BDP-95 or an Ayre C5 would be a 10.
