This is the transport version of the SFCD-1 CD player. It was paired with the SFD-2 DAC (also for sale in a separate listing) for a $6,800 digital playback combo. That was a lot of money back and would have been a five figure setup in today’s dollars. The transport mechanism was designed for low jitter (an issue back then) but the real steal for this transport is the various digital output – AES/EBU, coaxial, BNC and ST Glass. This allows it to be connected to any high end DAC which typically uses these “premium” digital outlets.
Cosmetically, the unit looks really good. One previous owner since new. Minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. Transport mechanism was recently lubricated and works flawlessly. Remote is included but no original box or manual. Unit will be securely packed for safe shipping. See our other listing for the matching DAC. Price and listing is for the SFT-1 CD transport only.
