Right from the onset, when you set eyes on the CD-1 CD player, you know it is going to be an enjoyable experience listening to it. And lo and behold, your expectations are met and exceeded. Its pitch and tone were just close to perfection with most music. Heavy rock may sound a tad busy and confused but classical, jazz and vocals were mesmerizing. Plonk in a CD and you will find yourself suck in to its musical magic.
This is a CD player with Audio Research’s renown quality and reliability married to a true audiophile sound. Some letters on the rear are faded off but nothing major. Original box and remote included.
