The DP-80 CD transport from Accuphase is quite simply, a work of beauty. Perfectly engineered with impressive build quality and top marks for reliability. The CD tray slides in and out with a silky motion that just makes you wonder what did the other manufacturers get it wrong in their CD mechanism. Digital output is via coaxial or toslink. Paired with a top class DAC (like PS Audio’s DirectStream DAC) and you would have assembled one of the finest sounding digital playback system for under $10,000.
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Some scratches on the wood side panels but nothing major. Original remote included and unit will be securely packed for safe shipping.
