http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Philips-CD-960-CD-Player-FB-/220672086119?pt=DE_Elektronik_Computer_Audio_Hi_Fi_CD_Player&hash=item336114d067#shId
I should have mentioned it sooner.   This is the same seller (bertramb2) who I bought my CD960 from.     The player arrived very well packed, and in great condition.

Alas, a CD960 appears, and then disappears just as quickly.

I love my tricked up CD960,  it's not going to be replaced by the CD94.   The 94 is going under the bed, as a spare.

What is going on with all these players flooding the market place? Although this one's a transport only!

I do like the look of that Pete.  Top loader with no covers.   Not sure if that exposed look is best for performance though (wind pressure variations on the spinning disk, dust, etc.).  Although in saying that, 47Labs flat fish uses exposed top loading design and people say it is good!

Can anyone tell if the chip is legit?
I dont think it is legit.     It's from the same factory/year/month of manufacture Mario's S1 crown.    Take a look at Marios, and compare it to the chip in the ebay listing.....

The crown is a different shape.

Find a SB and use it as a transport.  It has a 3rd party jitter measurement of 80ps on the coax out.  Not many transports have a measurement that low.

mcb has got one and its modded,still far behind a true recommended transport on the web that is used by so many owners of the killer dac.

Seems the killerDac must be faulty ;P  Any objective blind tests done to confirm this?

Fair dinkum, well there you go.   We'll have to take a snap of the chip in your mates player, and add it to the TDA catalogue.

Drizt, the blind testing thing has been done to death and on another thread, this thread is about transports. 

The SB from what I have heard is a good product and it's great for background music, but with dedicated listening to 2 channel music the SB is IMO well below the standard of CD played through a decent transport (& dac).

The killerdac's I have heard are not faulty. Feel free to disagree when you have compared a SB to a CD transport through a killerdac.

Cheers, flemo.

Not sure when to tell the wonderful mrs flemo. Either now that I've paid for it, or just surprise her when it arrives on the doorstep?  :D  I think I'll wait until it arrives!
