Sale or Trade: like new Cambridge Audio 740C - CD player/DAC/transport
Will Ship To: USA
Long story short - I recently ditched my Cambridge 840C for a 740C, since I wasn't using the balanced outs on the 840C anyway. The 740C sounds nearly identical imo. But I'm realizing now that I'd rather save the rack space and get something smaller. I only use CDs once in a while, and always with an external DAC, so the 740C is still overkill for me.
I'd like to sell it or trade it for a smaller unit - less than 10 inches wide. Something like a Parasound Zcd, or a Pro-Ject CD Box S, or a Musical Fidelity M1 CDT, etc. Digital output is all I need so the quality of the analog output is not relevant.
This could be a good chance for someone to get an MSRP $1100 player for a low price. It makes a killer DAC too - Toslink or coax SPDIF input, defeatable upsampling to 24-bit/384kHz. Far better than the original DACmagic with which it shared some parts, probably due to the better power supply in the 740C.
Anyway, shoot me a PM and let's talk about it.
