It would be very difficult to find a superior cd player that provides the analog/vinyl warmth, sound stage, and accuracy that this player produces. I have had many cd players, some much more expensive...and overall I must conclude this one is the best. In the past I have listened to mainly analog sources, but with this cd player, it's actually hard to choose between digital or vinyl during a listening session. That's a first for me going on 30 years now, ha.
This unit was originally purchased from an authorized dealer here in the States. Rating the unit an 8 as I am the second owner, but the machine is flawless. Note there is an usb port as well.
The last CD Player one will need.
Selling due to moving / downsizing / finances.
Thanks for looking,
