See Stereophile rave review linked below.
There is very some slight hazing on the front and sides. Hard to see in the photos.
Serial Number # 9312000018 and comes with Factory outer box, manual and very nice CD Weight.
The TL1 is a monumental from-the-ground-up design effort. C.E.C. makes virtually everything inside the TL 1, from the chassis down to the spindle shaft and bearings. The belt-driven transport mechanism was built exclusively for the TL 1. The TL1's massive internal build concealed beneath gorgeous metalwork. Its 37-lb weight, fortress-like build, and stunning appearance combine to suggest that the TL 1 is a serious product. The unit's rounded corners, sloping front and sides, and top-panel sliding window give it a futuristic yet elegant appearance. The top panel holds a sliding glass door that opens to reveal the disc mechanism. A large and very heavy clamp is placed on the disc to hold it on the spindle. Closing the door triggers a microswitch that spins the disc and reads the disc's Table of Contents (ToC). This switch is also a safety interlock: The laser won't turn on until the door closes. The TL 1 had an extraordinarily smooth and analog-like presentation.
