Just had this post pop up on Digg and was intrigued! Apparently the very first Playstation console is a dream for audiophile’s and contains amazing hardware which is up to scratch with a $6000 CD player.
Here is what ‘Riku’, a destructoid reader sent in to them
My father’s hobby is to search for “the perfect sound” making him a high-end audiophile. I was very surprised when I saw an old Playstation 1 (Version SCPH-1001/2) plugged into his super expensive audio rig. He told me, that that particular version of the console has RCA-inputs in the back which has a superb sound output. The console has become an underground sensation in the Hi-Fi scene. He told me to check out some articles at 6moons.com, an audiophile website.
And to think I never knew how great a sound output my first
love affair console really had. I really wish I still had it now – i’d use it as a CD player and imagine I was leet.
