This is a one owner, slightly used but well cared for Ayre C-5xe MP Universal Stereo Player. It was purchased new on 7/10/2006. The Minimum Phase MP filter upgrade was performed by Ayre Acoustics Inc. on 12/09/2009. Every function in this player works like new. The casework is 100% scratch free and pristine. I have the original factory shipping and packing material. An Ayre aluminum remote control, power cord and owner's manual will be Included in this sale.
