For music ?
Yes, music. They heavily beefed up the analog output section. They both play CDs, SACDs, DVD-As, and HDCDs. I personally prefer dedicated player for music.
The new units will **play** CDs encoded with HDCD, but they won't decode the HDCD "bits."
I have an Oppo 103, which does have switchable HDCD, and I hear very little difference with HDCD decoding turned off. I think Charles Hansen pointed out in another forum here that many discs will turn on the HDCD indicator but don't actually use any of the HDCD features.
