The sound is amazing compared to my old CD player. Definitely worth the upgrade!
Pros: Sound quality and easy operation.

I purchased this to go with my Yamaha A-S2100 integrated amplifier that I got from Crutchfield a year ago. Like all the Yamaha products that I have owned over the past 35 years, this SACD player is built exceptionally well. One thing I noticed about it is its heft. The player is built like a tank, and sounds great to boot. I haven't explored all the features yet, but out of the box and using XLR's (not included), it sounds fantastic.

The Yamaha SA/CD player exceeded my expectations. The sound quality is so much better than my 30 year old CD player. Crutchfield provided surpurb service. They kept me up to date on my order status, and even sent me a personal thank you for my order. Same great service I received in the 90s with my first order.

This player delivers the high quality sound from traditional and super audio CD's that you would expect from a player at this price point. Match this up to a great amplifier and speakers, and you'll witness life like performances (I listen through Ohm Walsh 4XO's). The Yamaha CD-S2100 is also pleasing in how smoothly and silently the disc transport works. For those who appreciate a minimalist design in their audio equipment they will enjoy the subtle appearance of the face plate, and everyone can appreciate the selection and craftsmanship of construction materials. In my experience this player certainly deserves its five-star rating.

At first my player skipped, even with brand new discs. The manual explains how to adjust the Digital Phased Lock Loop bandwidth. I was able to set it higher with the remote; now it does not skip. CDs really come alive. The sound is amazing. The unit is connected to a Mac preamp with XLR cables. The unit has multiple inputs (and outputs) for DAC, though I have not used these. You will find yourself playing your old CDs!
Pros: Sleek design, cool remote

Excellent CD player for audiophile entry. Seriously buying a player that would cost a couple of thousand more I couldn't justify the expense. Very clear and concise. My wife who doesn't really pay much attention to music was blown away how the unit sounded when hearing music. Ensure the player is connected to a quality amp that matches performance to reap the benefit of this magical player. Using XLR cables is a must also.
