Not sure what to do with your CD’s, especially that one mix you made in high school? If you are going to use the CD’s make sure your guest don’t hear the sound quality of 1999, the songs can be old but not the sound quality. What you use, is just as important as what you play.

Consider using the HD-CD1 Hi-Definition CD Player is a high-quality CD player in the same compact form as the HD-AMP1 amplifier, for which it is the perfect match. Combining more than 30 years of Marantz expertise in compact disc playback with the latest developments in digital audio technology, it's ideal for use as a CD transport when used with the HD-AMP1, or as a CD player in any situation where a compact form-factor is required without any compromise on sound quality.

Selected components are also used throughout the audio signal path, for the very best reproduction of your music.A centralized CD mechanism, able to play MP3, WMA and AAC files as well as standard CDs, is used for ultra-accurate disc-reading and, along with its analog audio outputs, optical and coaxial digital connections are provided, allowing the HD-CD1 to be connected directly to the HD-AMP1's ultra-high-quality digital-to-analog conversion. The HD-CD1 features a stylish solid aluminum front panel, double-layer chassis for vibration isolation and retro-style side panels. It also includes a high-quality integral headphone amplifier with adjustable gain to drive high-end headphones for personal listening and comes complete with a remote control for all its functions, also able to 'drive' a complete system of HD-CD1 and HD-AMP1. It's a superb Marantz CD player in miniature!
