Very smooth sounding CD player with tubed output. I am the second owner. Previous owner installed thin damping sheets on the inside of the top of the cabinet to damp vibrations. I have no idea if this improved the sound as I did not hear it before. This particular model comes with a chromed face plate. I will also include the black face plate with little use. I have not seen another Prima with the chrome face plate. I was told that it was a special edition. The chrome face is obviously difficult to photograph, but looks elegant and rich in person. There are fine scratches on the shiny face, but these do not show under normal conditions. There are no dings or dents, and as stated, a black face plate comes as a bonus.
