Financial circumstances are forcing me to sale my coveted Mark Levinson reference DVD/CD player. To tell the truth I never really used this much for DVD playback. Don't get me wrong, the DVD playback is killer and uses the best Faroudja up sampling that was then available. However, the CD playback is, bar none, the best and most analog like playback ever offered and rivals and surpasses all the big names like EMM Labs, Esoteric and DCS players. The original cost on this was 18k and only 150 were ever made because of the cost of the laser and of making the player.
The reference player offers all the details of the best analog rigs (mine is a Goldmund Reference system) without the hassle of set up and cartridges etc. This player plumbs the depths and small details in recordings better than any player I have heard. You will wonder why SACD was ever invented when listening. I knew that I could sell this unit years ago for much more but I also knew that I couldn't really replace it as I am the original owner and because of my heavy work schedule it has not had much use. My loss is your gain. Serious inquiries only.
Please add for Paypal. I have the original box and manual - even the white gloves. It weighs in at a hefty 50 lbs plus when boxed. I will ship outside the US but the buyer whether domestic or foreign will be responsible for shipping. I am a certified shipper for both UPS and FED EX and can get great rates if you desire.
