California Audio Labs Icon MK II with HDCD Power Boss Upgrade Model [Expired]


no longer for sale

A highly musical CD player that works flawlessly. It was given to me by my brother about 10 years ago when my player at the time broke. It was supposed to be "borrowed" it but loved it so much that I bought it from him (he is the original owner). The player is built like a tank and has always worked perfectly. Comes with remote and box/manual. At the asking price I will ship for free within the US via USPS Parcel Post. Read the reviews from fellow audiophiles at audioreview.com A review from Bob Reina of Stereophile: Although it's a bit long in the tooth, the Icon Mk.II is still my favorite CD player under $1000—colorations and all. The Power Boss upgrade, however, offers a significant improvement in sound quality compared with the stock player, even on nonHDCD recordings. Its HDCD performance is better still. Even with the promise of a higher-quality DVD-based digital standard on the horizon, the benefits of HDCD are substantial enough that anyone considering the purchase of a new player would be foolish not to embrace it—assuming the number of HDCD-encoded releases continues to grow. For a one-box player under $1500 to exhibit so few sonic flaws is quite a remarkable achievement; the Icon Mk.II HDCD is my new "affordable" reference player. As for the 23,000 owners of older Icon Mk.IIs, the $450 upgrade is a bargain. It is recommended to all who plan to keep their players for the foreseeable future.
