Shanling SACD S200 CD/SACD Player wi Level 1 mods [Expired]


no longer for sale

This Shanling SACD/CD player is similar to the Music Hall Maverick and was modified by Parts Connexion to the Stage 1 level. It's a heavy, well-built unit made of brushed aluminum, and is quite attractive. The sound is extraordinary; detailed, dimensional, and very high quality. A couple of scratches on the top plate, but otherwise pristine (an 8 or 9). The remote is very cool as well. It's a two channel player, and does not play some multi-channel discs, sometimes, as this is a known problem with these units (Shanling never did a firmware upgrade when multi-channel came around). SACDs it does play and CDs sound fantastic; I've always thought of it as a killer CD player that plays most of my SACDs. If you need a very high- end CD player for not a lot of money, this is it.
