This cdp doesn't exist anywhere on the internet (as far as I can tell) so I just had to share this for posterity's sake. I just picked up this extremely rare 1986 Belgian Beast for only $12 at Savers! "Philco CD2460" with the highly vaunted and sought after Philips TDA1541 DAC. Drrty as all get out but has devastatingly awesome sound (already) with its old, dried out capacitors and will sound even better when I'm through upgrading it. In addition to the regular RCA jacks, it also has a digital coaxial output which is almost completely unheard of technology for '86. WAY ahead of its time in the sound quality department. The Belgians really knew what they were doing. When it comes to SQ, they don't mess around! Whoda thunk "Philco" was any good, am I right? That's because their cd players are so rare as to hardly exist. Very similar to the Belgian-made Magnavox players of this era. That is to say, exceptional sounding. 'Philips Company' or Philco for short, is a storied, Belgian-based organization that has been pushing the technological envelope since 1892 and developed "Mission Control" for NASA in the 1960's among many other "firsts" in the electronics technology industry. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philco Notice how all the ICs on the boards are Philips branded? They didn't use any chips from other makers on this one. You have greater control over the sound you can create from your cd player if you're also making the chips that are installed inside because it gives you much greater familiarity with the specifics of what went into engineering and designing them and exactly how they will sound in relation to the final sound or synergy you are after, ultimately culminating in a superior product. All 5 black ICs are 'Philips' branded as is the large, silver can capacitor. This is not usually the case in electronics development where you have several 'in-house' components installed on the main board. Exciting stuff to be sure..Greater engineering familiarity with componentry yields superior results of a final end product- just about ever time. Combine that with the fact that you're working with perhaps the greatest, obsolete digital-to-analog converter (TDA1541) that is one of the first and best ever made, and the results speak for themselves. I know it looks like a hilariously cheesy VCR (which is the 'nouveau' look they were going after at the time) but the buck stops here, no joke!
