As one of Germany’s more intriguing hifi manufacturer, the Klarheit 2/ Clarity 2 MK.3 CD player is Symphonic Line most affordable CD player. That being the case, we weren’t haboring high expectations from a “$5,000” CD player/DAC but we were so wrong! First off, this is a lot of machine for its “budget” price tag. Its solidly made with the weight to show for it. Add its multiple digital inputs to reap the excellent DAC on board and its CD playback ability and this is a multi-talented source unit that should be priced much higher than its lowly $5,000 price tag. If this is Symphonic Line’s “starter” CD player/DAC, we can’t imagine how heavenly their higher up models will sound. Vocals was especially luscious through it. Imaging was splendid and so “real” it was like having the singer in your room (of course you need some real top notch gears to go with it). The musicality of this player is something we have come to hear from a player that typically cost twice and even three times as much. There are no buttons on the front faceplate so everything is controlled via the remote control or the sole selector switch on the rear panel to select your digital inputs. This is the MK.3 version which has the newer CD transport (available from 2018 onwards) and a trickled down power supply from their one model up Vibrato CD player.
As you can see from the pics, the unit is in excellent condition. We have the original box, remotes (one in NEW condition) and their in house AC cord. It will be securely packed for safe shipping.
