CD players seem pretty outdated nowadays. I even replaced my laptop's CD drive for an SSD - because I download nearly all of my music online, and when I want to rip a CD I just plug a drive into my eSATA port. But I was looking for a CD drive to complete my new stereo setup - which I don't think I am even going to get because I have a turntable for my vinyls and my laptop for everything else...

However, I found that there are a lot of 24bit CD players on ebay that sell for 2 to 5 thousand dollars! As far as I was aware CDs are physically 16bit storage devices. Am I wrong? Are CDs actually 24 bit, or are these multi thousand dollar CD players just complete gimickes?

The Cirrus CS 3308-3318 provides a ready analog-domain solution for a music player volume control:

Why use another chip when recent DACs have a build in digital volume control?
