I didn't notice that. It seems to sound as good as any other player I have.

Strange? I wonder if I have a setting off or something. The highs just crack and sizzle on CDs, but on every other format, even stereo DVD's, sounds fantastic. Never had that problem with my old CD player so I don't think it is the rest of the rig. I'll have to dig into that. I love the one-unit does it all setup I have now. Would hate to drop in a another box just for CDs, but perhaps I can locate a good deal on Ebay for a quality CD only unit. Who could want those????

Try streaming to the PS3 with a lossless format to see if it is just the PS3s DAC at work.

I'm listening to The Assassination of Jesse James soundtrack (Nick Cave/Warren Ellis) on my NEW AUDIOBYTES. Really amazing soundtrack.

Charles, all CD players have handled them with flat frequency response and inaudibly low noise and distortion for quite a few years now. This certainly would include the PS3, unless it's been damaged or somehow adjusted incorrectly. Impossible to diagnose the problem at this distance of course, but you can be sure that the design of the PS3 is adequate, and both in theory and in practice(as reported by many users)the CD reproduction should be audibly flawless.

Damn; that is what I was afraid of. I need to test it a bit more. I was using older CD's and one of low critical listening quality, but I still can't logically explain why CDs would sound so bright (no, harsh) compared to every other format. As soon as I heard it I immediately switched over to a few MP3s saved on my PS3 (of equally old vintage) and they sounded 5 times better/smoother/more controlled/accurate in the upper range. I'm going to try Jakewash's idea this weekend. Anybody know if the same DACs are used for MPS/WMA playback as the CD? I assume so, hope I am wrong.
Thanks for the input, and sorry to hijack yet another thread. I need to change my Avatar to a damn pirate.

No way I'm gonna read through 351 pages here. I have a question. I got a Sharp Blu-ray player with my LCD purchase. Do regular CD's play on this player any better than on a regular CD player? My CD player broke down a while ago so I can not compare.

Nope. They'll all play the same.
