Extra Info: Here are two old Marantz CD players. They both have the famed CDM-1 swing arm transport, and TDA1540 DAC pair.

I am selling my BAT VK-D5SE CD player. The player uses four Burr Brown PCM1704K 24bit dac chips, arguably one of the best dac chips ever produced. The player has a tubed output stage with four 6H30 tubes. The tubes in the player are the original ones supplied by BAT. I never opened the player. This is the latest version of this player. This is the first time the latest version is offered for sale on SNA. Earlier versions employed 20bit dac chips and/or different Philips drives. The review below has all the details about the different versions.
This is very likely the last VK-D5SE player that ever sold new worldwide. I bought it brand new and sealed less than 5yrs ago from AV Gallery, an authorized BAT dealer. The player is in unmarked condition and comes with the original box and all original accessories. The massive remote control has some tiny marks. Also, a battery once seems to have leaked inside the remote control's battery compartment. This has no impact on functionality at all. The BAT remote control also worked with Musical Fidelity and Marantz equipment.
This is what lampizator.eu has to say about the BAT VK-D5SE: "This is one of the best CD players ever made. Well built, all design is optimized for perfect analog-like sound. Digital output quality can rival the best transports. It goes without saying that it has balanced XLR and RCA outputs. True balanced topology from one of the best designers in the industry." The designer is Victor Khomenko.
I agree. I have not heard a better CD player. I compared it to high-end Esoteric and Marantz players when I bought it and preferred the BAT because of its analog-like sound. It is built like a tank.
The original box is extremely sturdy. I am happy to ship the CD player in its original box at buyer's risk and expense. The dimensions of the box are 25cm x 62.5cm x 53cm. The gross weight is about 17kg. Alternatively, the player can be collected from Williamstown or Carlton.
