Italian manufacturer Mel Audio Company's Recháv II CD player boasts a circular shape for both visual beauty and to reduce resonances that can negatively affect music reproduction abilities. With a 33cm diameter and in some ways reminding us of vinyl replay, the Recháv II chassi is made from medium density fiberboard (MDF) wood plus hand turned metacrylate (push buttons and clamps). The name of the unit is from ancient Jewish language, meaning "Celestial chariot" (G-d's throne) as described in the Ezekiel's book. Frequency response is from 2Hz to 20,000kHz with a 90dB signal to noise ration. The entire unit weighs is at 6kgs.

Very interestingggggggggg...........
But hard to tell if this is audio gear or waffle iron, heh heh.

I still have to say the Shanling CDP is the sexiest/sweetest looking unit I have seen.

lol, your first thought and my first thought were the same.



Seriously, is this a serious attempt at a high end player, or just a "ooo, its pretty" type thing?

Definitely not. That has got to be one of the ugliest colours I have ever seen. I was just holding up a sweatshirt that colour to a friend of mine showing her how ugly it was, and while I was doing it, I started having flashbacks to the 70's!
