I did not even realise there was a call for these things any more, …I did not even realise there was a call for these things any more, remember buying a standalone CD player in the eighties , I assumed with streaming and other digital media that these where finished, apart from dedicated audiophiles who buys these and why?, just curious, as I a man who was there at the birth of these things, I just do not see the attraction anymore.


Several reasons, personally I prefer to have a physical copy of the media, including the booklet, being a traditionalist. Furthermore, it gives me a sense of satisfaction that the artists I support by buying this will actually receive a decent cut for their hard work as streaming only benefits the companies involved, most of the artists I listen to have day jobs! I do rip my CD's to digital format for convenience (although I do still own a CD walkman, and an original tape walkman). Lastly I actually enjoy the ritual of removing a cd from the case, placing it into the player, closing the tray and pressing play, and I love the "new cd booklet smell" ... Nostalgic dinosaurs like me will never move on and hopefully we will keep the niche market of hi-fi alive. I have the marantz CD6000 Signature Ed, prchased circa 1992 and its still going strong.
P.S. Vinyl can do one! I'm not THAT old...

Good deal but couldn't find any stock near me
Good brand ...I'm still using the one I bought over 10 years ago.
And yes I'm still picking up good priced cds.

Great price, love my older 5005. Heat
Couldn't possibly buy Marantz in any colour than champagne.
hmmm, it WOULD match my Marantz AV amp nicely...
Reserved in Lisburn. Dammit.
ah the great vinyl scam....can't believe so many people have fallen for it :/
Good price, have some heat. Though I'd probably ask Richersounds to price match.

What about cassette? I do listen to some of my old cassettes now and again, I actually like the sound compared to a lot of the digital versions.

Takes all sorts I guess, I have gone through the stages of queuing outside WH Smiths for a 45rpm single record, through, reel to reel tapes, compact cassettes, super 8 track tapes, compact disks, and now at the age of 60 have fond memories of all that old tech but no way would I go back, its to me a bit like having a rack full of VHS tapes, no for me, but appreciate there are people who wish to remain in the past for what ever the reason, there are some people who like to deal in cash rather than use a bank card etc, strange how we are all different.
I have this,and while I still use it for the occasional CD, I mostly use it for the USB port to run Spotify from my phone because the PM6006 won’t do that. I’ll maybe get the NA6006 if it ever drops to a decent price.
Recently got a pair of monitor audio bronze br1 from charity shop sound really good, good quality kit does sound better. For £45 I got the speakers a Denon m35dab and a Sony mini disc recorder. The mini disc should get 90 on eBay and the Denon about 60 , so check out charity shops for hifi gear

I don't have cassette but you are right, the sound is great as long as you have a half decent player.

I've still got 2 great hifi's, they must be 30 years old. Pretty expensive when I bought them new, both Kenwood's.

The issue with cassette was the tape degrades over time.

Issue with cassettes is finding chrome tapes, I got a couple at charity shops. Not spending 10nquid on a tape from ebay

I've got loads of old chrome and metal tapes somewhere (used to love the Sony metal ones) - do they have some value?

Yes about 5 to 10 quid, but metal ones will be like gold dust

I'm off digging through my old tat later - got some Metal XR somewhere.
Will better blue Ray player produce same sound? Processing is same as they deal with much higher bitrates.

Except it's nothing like having a rack full of VHS tapes at all. VHS was replaced by formats with superior sound and picture quality which required less space to store and were more resilient, in other words a major upgrade in every way.

Streaming on the other hand may well be more convenient but it comes at a price of inferior sound quality to CD, and you don't need high end equipment to tell the difference. With music I know well I can clearly hear the difference on my £500 Denon mini system.
I miss racks of VHS tapes, excitedly looking at their spines for names of favourite movies. Same with DVDs and even your favourite CDs. I still have my vinyl record collection from my DJing days, flicking thru record sleeves, checking out artwork, reading the names of individual mixes. You had to take time to enjoy it, select it and putting it on. You dedicated your time to the formats. but even i admit those times are past now and it's a shame. i love the convenience of music on my iphone in my pocket or steaming my mp3 from my server around the house and via a web browser - but i feel less invested in the experience - it's just not the same. I love a HiFi set up

There's no reason a bit perfect rip of a CD would sound any different!

I agree, but to do that you're still buying the physical media which need to be stored somewhere (unless you're naughty and sell them on after you've ripped them), hence the racks of VHS tapes comparison.

Dispensing with CDs entirely and either streaming or downloading will leave you with poorer sound quality

I guess that's true with Spotify and MP3s, but not from FLAC or streaming from TIDAL or Amazon HD.

A lot of us are still using equipment older than that I'm sure.
My Yamaha CR800 receiver from c.1975 is still in regular use. Also using a Nakamichi cassette deck 20+ years old.

Well, that's a bit more palatable. £800 is just silly money.
