The DP-85 is nothing short of incredible. As always, Accuphase over build their products. It weighs in a hefty 43 lbs and the smooth operating disc tray is the epitome of first class operation. We had the DP-75v earlier and the DP-85 is sonically superior. Music reproduction had more finesse and definition (from an already excellent DP-75v). This is truly what a high end digital player is all about. If you are planning to use the DP-85 as an SACD transport, please note that the digital output of a SACD must pass through its HS-Link output. The conventional coaxial digital output is only for regular CD digital out. We have also the DP-100 and DC-101 transport and DAC combo if you must have the reference of reference digital playback.
Cosmetically, the unit is in very good shape. Very minor scuff marks from use and a few tiny knicks but nothing major. This player was recently serviced at their service center in New York City with a new laser assembly installed (same common issue, the SACD laser has gone week and will only read SACDs as CDs). Total cost of service was nearly $1,000 so the player will be good for many more years to come. We have the original manual and remote and will securely pack it for safe shipping.
