Bottom Line:   
This is the Philips CD 723, with a remote control and a coax. digi. out. It has a very handy fade out, on both digi. and analogue signals, and a volume control on headphone AND signal output!
With a discount card I only paid 94.00 for it and for the price the quality is brilliant, for sound and built.
With good quality cable, both digi. and analogue, through my Yamaha DSPA1 amp., the analogue connection won by far. This will tell you something about the very good built in DAC in this player compared to the Yamaha's.
Very recommended.

Bottom Line:   
Before I rigged my Systemdek up on my Boat, this was my main source of Music. MUCH better than the Rotel - which was Rotels' 1st attempt - and I tracked it down on the basis of it being a What HiFi mag. "Best Buy". I concur with their findings. I find it very dependent on the CD playing as to how it sounds. Get a well-produced CD, and it's good listening indeed (for CD that is!) and I can spend longer than an hour in listening to music I don't have on LP. Nevertheless, decidedly inferior to my Vinyl set up from every criteria. But at the price I got it at a pedal-to-the-metal bargain indeed. I think if CD was the single source I would be ticked at the lack of upgradeability. But it's a great piece of kit nonetheless and so far, has proven reliable with no problems (fingers X'd!).

Bottom Line:   
Marantz sound - quite warm and open. Good soundstage , detail and rhytmical capabilities. Initialy it was a bit harsh with revealing HK 620 amp. Get rid of captive signal lead, cut in phono sockets, exchange output
opamp ( there is only one on circuit board, if remember correctly, JRC 4560 ) to higher quality Burr-Brown OPA 2604,
and you have unmissable product for it's price.

Bottom Line:   
I got this player from my brother who bought it at just SDG$180. CD721 sounded musically gd with gd clarity, fair amount of bass and the treble was crisped. It sound much better compared to my Marantz cd63se which had a better soundstage. The downside of this player was the lack of digital or coaxial output. For budget wise, Cd721 is a gd buy.

My system consists of:
Rotel RCD951
NAD C340
TEAC T-R400
Dynaudio 40
Transparent Musiclink Plus
QED Qnect2
Kimber 8TC
