Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: 14bit with Noise shaping

is all they could do then - it sounded better than the 16 bit from Sony. Mostly - given the "produced" dynamic range of most recordings - the linear bit depth is not really an issue. The early CD player differences is really the time effect of the alias filters - and the quality of the Opamps used in the anti-image filter assigned to the DAC. There were rapid advances with the CD players in the first 5 years. by the late 1980's you would be hard pressed to be able to double blind any difference from what is available now.

The DAC's in a cheap $79 tablet today are better than the ones used "back in the dawn of the CD player.
