Sony CDP608ESD Burr Browns VINTAGE audiophile level CD player

One VERY fine audiophile level CD player with EXCELLENT Burr Brown DACs. Vintage from the 1980's. If you can find one these days, in VG to MINT condition it is worth every penny....would easily pay up to $500 for one. Had mine for a year as a dedicated standalone mated to a headphone amp and AKG K701 cans. Simply stated, warm, lush sound. Any unit still around these days obviously flushed out any laser probs mfg during the eighties. This unit is HEAVY, solid chassis. Tried many diff CD players over the years, like this one the best. Sure many better ones out there, if you want to pay two or three times MORE , even used units .....For an audiophile on a budget, can't beat this.

This manual is a prerequisite for any owner. Have not replaced any components, but it does provide insight on the construction of this unit, which allows you to appreciate it a bit more :-)
