it seems to support balanced output and the description, with poorly written English states that it upsamples?

I dont know if that feature can be turned off though.

Anyone know anything about this cd player? Is it worth the money?
the site doesnt state the brand name, but it looks like something that was probably rebadged as with alot of Chinese components.

the style reminds me of Arcam type players.

wow, i wish they detailed the actual components or at least a brand name, a lot of that chinese stuff is killer though, cheap labor plus cheap bootlegged hot parts = a great bargain! However, that dealer's got a ton of negative and neutral feedback, so im not too sure about that...

the measurements are insane, extremely low distortion, great sn ration and channel separation, it looks good on paper but you know what they say, "if its too good to be true, its probably not"

Yea I bought a headphone tube amp, and it wasnt that great. I guess you get what you pay for, I think mine was like $290 shipped.

But the this cd player looks great,

Its the same price as the onix 88 with the op amp mods.

anyone care to take a hit for head fi to find out if this player is legit?
or if anyone can find the rebadged version of this player?

His communication is poor, He'll respond to you emails before you pay and after payment he ignores your emails.

He shipped my tube amp with the tubes installed for goodness sakes.

but the cd player looks nice
