When asked why we bother to produce a stand-alone CD player in this modern era of high-resolution music and streaming, I am reminded of several reasons. First is that so many of us have massive CD collections that are as capable of sparking joy today as they were years ago when first purchased. CDs can sound unbelievably good--a testament to their ability to continue to outsell digital downloads. Finally remember that for so many music lovers, learning a new digital playback method simply gets in the way of enjoying music. If any of these resonate with you, perhaps the BCD-3 will be the last CD player you'll ever need.
