Audio Research CD-2 CD player. Stereophile recommended. $3,500 MSRP

Selling for $1,094.00

Affordable high end CD player!


This has been such an enjoyable CD player to listen to that it totally doesn’t deserve to be sold at this price. But market dictates it as such and so we follow. Which makes this a REAL STEAL. Some may wonder how is that so considering there are CD players that cost $200-$300 out there. But this is where the distinction on what is considered audiophile quality and just “making sound” cannot be more apparent. The CD-2 is magically musical CD player. You can almost envision musical notes floating around the room when listening to this player. Imaging was superb and vocals was enticing surreal. A good system pairing will bring about great results.  We thoroughly enjoyed this CD player and whole heartedly recommend it as the cornerstone towards a great sounding system.

Cosmetically, the player is in great shape. Minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We don’t have the original remote but will include a programmed Logitech Harmony remote that will operate it. CD player will be securely packed for safe shipping.
