One thing for sure when it comes to a Japanese high end flagship product is that it is always a work of art. They are always built to a standard unlike most other brands. The DP-90 CD transport is one such product. Massively overbuilt in a 8mm thick aluminum chassis, the precision CD transport is totally isolated from any external influences on its duty of reading a CD disc. When you remove the top cover, you will be awed at the clear layout of its boards, power supply and the transport mechanism. Everything is so artfully positioned and thoughtfully engineered that calling itself a “flagship product” is a well deserved recognition. One very small and minor knick on the front edge of the face plate but otherwise, looks really good. The bulb behind the “Accuphase” logo on the front will need to be replaced. This has no impact on the sound. Buy it now price is lowered by $250 to take this into account. Original remote control included.
