Default really...REALLY???

"Sony Playstation 1 (Model No. SCPH-1001). I had heard rumors of just how good this particular version of the PS1 is when used as a CD player and was curious to give it a listen. This kid's video game player really does have outstanding audio performance. I'm guessing you'd have to spend more than $6000 on a one-box CD player to equal let alone better it." (from some #moon site)

I used to use it on occasion for listening to cd's. Not too shabby. I still have it too.

Playstations are pretty good multi-taskers. I am still using a PS3 in my home theater array as a bluray spinner.

And if it has the original firmware, you can use it to archive your SACDs.

Although it is much easier now with a few OPPO, Pioneer and apparently some very cheap Sony players.
