Classic CD player with mod to analog output stage, using Amperex 6DJ8 tube. Modification done by Matt Kamna of the Oregon Triode Society, a former HP computer designer who does beautiful and meticulous work. Sound is lush, sweet and warm. Works beautifully on redbook CDs but has difficulty with CD-Rom copies. Tube mod bypasses headphone output and volume control on unit, so they have been deactivated. I've owned a Dynaco CDV 2 and this is easily as good sounding, if not better. Unit sounds comparable to CD players costing many times it's price.
