No intro necessary here. This is one of the best CD players you can buy now for under $1,000. It’s incredibly smooth (smoother than the similarly priced Sony SCD-777ES CD player) and warm sounding. The Sony has a slight edge in detail retrieval and a better built quality but the Classe is nicer looking, especially with its touchscreen. In our opinion, at the $1,000 price point, these two units are probably the best buy in a fairly crowded field. You won’t be disappointed with either one.
Cosmetically, the unit is in nice shape. Some minor scuff marks but nothing major. Remote is included (a rubber strip on the underside of the remote is missing) and the manual can be obtained online. Unit will be securely packed for safe shipping.
