Only come here when I want help - hee hee -- CD Player advice

So this is the gig ....

I'm after a CD player that I can plug into active speakers but it has to be via digital optical output (not coaxial, not RCA, etc.)

Not as easy as it sounds. I can see the Marantz 5005/6006 are options but, to be honest, I'm after something with a smaller footprint.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Let the tumbleweed commence

I know Denon do a range of CD-players with digital output. Did you check them out?

I think most CD player/recorders have digital. Mine does (it’s a Pioneer). And while I never use it to record, I have never heard a better sounding CD player.

Very true, but I'm hunting for optical, rather than coaxial or HDMI or whatever *thumbs up emoticon*

Apologies. I should have said optical. That is what mine has.

PDR-609. I’ve had it for years - more than 10 - and it just keeps working.
