Tent Labs non-oversampling tube CD player in excellent condition. I am the original owner having purchased it fully assembled by Guido Tent in the Netherlands.
The player operates in 105V ~ 240V and can easily be set to your operating AC voltage.
Single-ended RCA output only.
I did not opt for the digital/USB input option, thus digital out only, but digital input can be retrofitted at Tent Labs or one can purchase the module for DIY installation. Output voltage is 2V.
The finest parts have gone into this player one would not see in off the shelf players, including a very robust and extensive power supply section, the venerable Philips CD-ProM drive, PCM1704 dac chips, Audio Note copper oil coupling caps, Audio Note tantalum resistors, and the famed Tent Labs clock and power supplies section.
For those of you unfamiliar with Guido Tent, he previously worked at Philips and applies his immense expertise on digital circuitry into his CD player. His Tent Labs digital component parts are highly sought after by the DIY community also.
This unit has also been upgraded with
**an additional toroidal transformer for the purest and most stable voltage installed by Tent Labs, bringing it to FOUR transformers on this player
**Eichmann copper RCA on the digital out
**HiFi Tuning Classic Silver/Gold fuse
Will include a 1960s NOS Mullard CV2492 disc-getter gold-pins plus Mullard 6X4 and a custom-made set of three solid bubinga wood couplers and three macassar ebony balls.
I've had a few tube CD players (Audio Aero Capitole, EAR Acute, Lector CDP7, Cary 308T) and the Tent Labs is definitely the best sounding one thus far. Spending more time with computer audio so I'm selling this player to make room for a tube DAC for a desk-top system.
Plenty of reviews and plaudits available on-line. The 6moons review is particularly informative.
