This unit is part of my collection and part of a set of Elite Audio System in the picture. The unit has an amazing digital sound as perfect as Nakamichi DR-1.

Pioneer's dual auto-reverse cassette deck features a digital processing system that improves the quality of tape-to-tape dubs. It includes 20-bit A/D and D/A converters, Legato Link conversion for extended frequency response, and a frequency level expander. In addition to high-quality analog noise reduction, the CT-05D has automatic tape selection and blank skip capabilities.
If you're reading this, you probably have a large tape collection, or a cassette player in your car, or both. The cassette tape format continues to improve, and the dual-well CT-05D makes the most of it. Pioneer uses digital technologies on this analog format to make tapes sound even better, with its exclusive Digital Processing System (DPS) and Legato Link conversion. This full-logic, dual-motor player also features CD Deck synchro for easy CD recording and a list of other convenience features.
Here is the unit in action, the distortion in the sound id from the camera that couldn’t pick up all the sound details.

I bought this unit for one reason only - to transfer old cassettes to a digital medium. I have since used it to make a few compilation tapes of non-critical-listening music (Christmas tunes on cassettes collected over the yrs.) I have tapes that were absolutely unlistenable on the Sony Dolby S unit, but played back extremely well on the Pioneer. It really does remove the background hiss. On some tapes, it will truly sound like a CD. I have even dubbed a few songs from CD's that had background hiss from the master tapes, and it removed this noise also (I then put this on MiniDisc, and the result was far better than a direct dub, assuming the hiss was annoying enough.). If your main concern is salvaging old cassettes and recording them to digital, this is the ONLY way to do it. If you have the extra pocket change, I would recommend the CT-05D or the CT-07D because of the FLEX circuitry which restores much of the high end. I have gone so far as to preferentially buying, in some cases, a cassette over a CD because it was much cheaper and would sound so close to CD quality.
Since I am not using the deck to record material for critical listening, I have not done a direct comparison between it and the Sony. However, most people will record on a home deck and then listen to the tapes on a portable or car unit. If you are intending to record tapes to listen to on another unit, a Dolby S unit is preferable since it plays back with better sound on a Dolby B or C unit.
