Line Magnetic LM-515 Vacuum Tube CD Player [Expired]

no longer for sale

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,
