Highly rated cd player, former 'class A' from Stereophile, also 'editor's choice' from the 'Absolute Sound'. Beautiful, clear, sound. I am downsizing my entire system. I bought this player about four years ago. It had a problem about a year ago, which was fixed for free through Primare, even though the warranty had expired. It has performed flawlessly since. There are no visible marks on it. Do not have original box, but it will be shipped securely in the box it came in. Please add 3% if you are using paypal. Pet free and non-smoking home.
