    EAD Ultradisc 2000 CD Player - in as-new condition

    The EAD 2000 is an audiophile classic and this particular unit is near pristine.  I can find no scratches, smudges, nicks or gouges anywhere on the faceplate or casework.  Unit is mechanically as-new – everything works perfectly.  The sound is detailed yet warm and relaxed, with an analogue-like...

    Perreaux SXH1 now $599 at HiFiFarm
