Very lightly used since most of my listening has moved to computer-based playback. The unit is in immaculate condition and perfect working order. I am the original owner, purchased just over 3 years ago.
This is perhaps the most organic sounding Esoteric player. Along with Esoteric's standard clean and detailed sound, it combines transparency with tonal density, giving a very high level of musicality for its price. Winner of The Absolute Sound's Editor's Choice 3 years in a row, and 6 moons Blue Moon award.
In addition to the legendary Esoteric build quality (the unit weighs over 50 lbs), other features include:
- die-cast aluminum and steel VRDS disc transport
- 2 Burr Brown 1704 24-bit DAC chips per channel
- 6N pure copper internal wiring
- WBT Nextgen connectors
- RCA and XLR stereo analog outputs
- Coaxial, optical and i.Link digital outputs, so you can use it as a very high quality transport feeding into your DAC
- Word clock input
