Recognized as one of the best SACD/CD/DAC units ever made. Here is what makes THIS unit unique.
Condition: Zero Scratches, Zero Scuffs, Zero Dust, Zero finger prints. Zero signs of wear. According to Audiogon's standards, a unit may qualify for 10/10 only if it is less than 1 year old. That is the only reason why I haven't listed this as "Mint". Otherwise, the unit looks and functions as brand new. Even the remote shows no signs of wear. I have always given my equipment the literal "white glove" treatment. And it shows.
Fully Upgraded: According to Andreas himself, "There is nothing left for me to upgrade with your unit. The only possible improvement is to get the Dream DAC." (Which is what I did.)
Brand new, unused Transport mechanism: The original transport worked fine. But as a courtesy, the factory unexpectedly installed a new one the last time I sent the unit in for an upgrade. I had already fully switched to a server based system, utilizing the MPS-5 as a DAC only. Since I no longer spin CDs or SACDs, the new transport mechanism has zero use on it.
It took me several months of deliberation before deciding to finally get the Playback Designs Dream DAC. That is how happy I was living with this unit. I'm sure anyone who truly appreciates the best in audio reproduction will too.
