This is a used player with very little actual use, maybe 100-200 hours. It is not the rack-mount version and has the full case.
The cosmetic condition of this player is good overall and the player is in working and in good condition as well.

Description (from meridian):
For over 20 years, Meridian has created superior optical disc players that have delivered better and better sound quality with each successive generation, keeping step with continually improving digital recording and disc mastering techniques.
Important milestones were the identification and near-eradication of player design problems including jitter, mechanical feedback, servo instability, playability, converter linearity and interface design, along with support for DVD-Audio.
Bob Stuart, Meridian's chief designer, was heavily involved in the evolution of audio formats for DVD - resulting in MLP (Meridian Lossless Packing) being selected as the definitive coding system for the DVD-Audio format.
The 800 offers the kind of features needed to exploit DVD in a high-end home theatre, to interface with state-of-the-art digital surround processors (such as the Meridian 861) and to handle the latest high-quality projection and plasma systems.
