    I want to buy a CD player. I am indifferent as to the make or model but I do have some stipulations. I don't want a model that is more than 10 years old, no exessive wear on chassis or internals, a warm musical sound,No SACD, no DVD-A but HDCD is fine, no mega disk changers, 5 or 6 disk carousel max, single disk minimum (naturally). At this point a remote is required, but that may change (if I can find a cheap one that is useable). Max price is 150 US dollars excluding shipping. Offers from over seas are acceptable. Thank you!

    Ok, I'm looking for either a Arcam Diva CD72T or a Music Hall MMf CD-25. Anyone got one they want to sell?

    Yamaha CDC-501
    Mfgr date is april 1995, it's a bit older than I thought. Works great, I just never use the damn thing so I removed it from my rack to save clutter.
    It came with a remote, but has been lost. I used my universal remote with it just fine.

    Jonathan,
    I have a Sony XA3ES that I have no use, comes with remote and no blemishes. It has been sitting idle for a few months. I bought new from GG in 1996 for $700 and willing to let it go for $250. I have manual and box, without the foam. Let me know if this within your budget..thanks

    Frances, I was hoping to stay under 200 for this purchase. I am flexible, but I will need to do some research first.

    Philip, what's your asking price?

    I have no idea what to ask for it. I saw one sell on ebay for 50+ shipping, so I guess that's where I'll start [​IMG]

    Jonathan,

    I have a Sony ES ~ CDP-C701es ~ 5 Disc carousel CD Player.
    It has optical out, built-in head phone amp with level control, very sturdy felt-like lined tray, and cd name bank.

    Honestly they don't make them like this any more.
    I believe it was manufactured in '94, but I'll have to double check.
    In the original box with manual, remote - all the goodies.
    The player has seen very little use and has actually been stored in the box for the past five years.
    I was thinking $125 shipped (OBO).
    Pics available if you want.

    chris

    Chris, could you give me pics? That would be great!

    Philip, 50 dollars US? That's quite attractive, give me a day to think about it once Chris provides pics.

    Jonathan I have a NAD Monitor 5000, which is a single disc player with remote and original box and manual. I bought it new in the mid 90's for $500. I would like $125+ shipping.
    Regards
    Al
