Musical Fidelity kW SACD/CD Player - Original Owner

I am converting my system to a fully balanced configuration necessitating a new player that supports SACD/CD with the requisite XLR connections.  SACD capability is important as I own many “pure” SACDs that do not contain the hybrid layer for playback by CD. If you own some of these discs, gotta have SACD playback capability!

The default for playback is CD followed by SACD.  This is the reverse of the original programming, but reflects changes made by MF when the unit was serviced and who refurbished the transport and laser assembly and updated the firmware.  Why they never provided a manual toggle to pick which mode to use, who knows??  But that’s how it is.  To my ear, it all sounds better using this player than lots of stuff costing 5-6x more.  

It makes no sense to have the kW SACD sitting unused, so off to Audiogon and a new home.

Since I intended never to buy another player, essentially intending to use this player for archival purposes and as mentioned above, SACD playback. As backup, I also acquired a spare kW laser assembly which I’m including with the player.  In addition, I've also included contact information for a German specialty shop that refurbs and rebuilds or replaces MF transports and laser assemblies.

The unit is well built, no plastic, not a lightweight.  It’s given me many hours of musical pleasure.  I've replaced the original "overcarton" with a new one to protect the original equipment box containing the SACD during shipping.

Also Includes:

Special CD K622 Mozart Clarinet Concerto by Antony Michaelson, Head of Musical Fidelity and a world class clarinetist.  Sounds great through either tube or solid-state output.

MF historical brochure detailing early years and products through 1980’s
