For the 11 people (really, only 11?!) who purchased this transport, any buyer's remorse? I do like it's design (it looks like it could be rack-mounted). Sure, I have a CD player built into my desktop PC. Is this device a worthwhile addition to an audio-toy-enthusiast's listening nook?

I picked up one of these used about 4 years ago and I'm not disappointed. if you can pick one of these up for a good price it's worth it...even just as a transport. it actually does sound pretty good through its analog outputs, but it really does shine as a transport. who actually makes cool small form factor brick solid transports anymore these days anyway? meh to the silver, though. heh anybody out there rocking a full Teac 500 series stack? respect.

Thanks for sharing. It sure is a handsome unit. Have you tried burning FLACs onto DVDs or DVD-RWs? The official product site says there should be no problem with that, but I'm wondering if that would actually work.

sorry I can't help you with that I have no experience. I've only played my own CDs on it.

This player was introduced in 2014. Got a pretty good review https://www.dagogo.com/teac-pd-501-digital-player-review/, but still 5+ year old technology. $475 isn't even 50% off of the MSRP. Gonna pass on this one.

I've done Raspberry Pi and Allo. Seperate storage, dedicated streamer, DAC, paid subscription player etc... I've had a better and cheaper experience with this. Just download an album and rip it to CD/DVD-R. Easy. It sounds damn good. Another thing, I'm digging just having 2 boxes in my space. This player and an integrated amp.

I guess it's your money and you can spend it how you like. But some audiophiles seem to have a very optimistic view of their hearing abilities. Just rip your CDs to FLAC lossless format and stream to your other audiophile equipment.
If only this was in black. I'd totally get it to go with the AX-501 and UD-501 that live in my bedroom.

So I have a $20 CD player, USB, and it sounds great, so what is BS4U?

I own it. It is a great, simple CDP. Teac missed the boat with the lack of any inputs and no SACD, but the build is solid (Esoteric, Teac/Tascam’s hifi brand makes some of the best disc players on the market). If you’re looking for redbook and/or a small form factor, it’s worth considering. Otherwise, there is probably better options for more/less money.

A Sony BDP with SACD capability would be a good starter option if you have a DAC with coax and a TV, or an AVR with HDMI. They’re available close to free. Tascam decks are also typically quite decent for redbook. The current Teac/Tascam 650 has a lot of the features this CDP is missing. You can find them under $200.

Better at draining the contents of my money vault? Better at fighting male pattern broke-assedness? 😁

In that case yes, and no.

Too bad it doesn't have inputs to use the internal DAC for other sources.
