Solidly constructed CD player that can also double up as a CD transport. Top loading design means that there is very little moving mechanical parts that might deteriorate the sound or wear out over time. Switch at the back allows for variable output which means you can plug the unit directly to a power amp and thus forgo the need for a preamp. This has been a very enjoyable unit and its time someone share in the joy. The remote has some dings but works perfectly. What you see on the pictures are what you will be receiving. Original unit shown in the pictures. I don’t have the original box or manual but will have it securely packed for safe shipping. Msrp was $3,000 but a bargain buy for $1200!
