This CD player is a keeper ...You would not buy an equivalent high quality player like this today for under 20K.

The build quality is second to none with the feather touch motorised lid. 

I can vouch for the sound quality of this unit  as I own a similar Deck the CDC -3500RG Denon 

I hope it goes to a Discerning Owner ....Maybe me :)...........

I have owned this player myself as well as the Kenwood L1000 series.

This player is very good as a transport as the dac is a little outdated but it has a very nice analogue sound similar to the Marantz CD94 & CD12 but better.It does need really good interconnects to make it shine.GLWTS

Great CDP here guys! 

As far as it sounding better than a Marantz CD12 (still fetching $6K plus...) I very, very much doubt! 
 

GLWTS!

I had a CD12 too & the Kenwood is better but the CD12 has collectable value for what reason I don't know.

Not everything more expensive has to sound better as it comes to personal taste but I can tell you the Kenwood is a very good sounding player.

I had the matching LA-1 integrated amp & compared it to the Marantz PM95 which I also had at the time as I was the only person to have one in WA & I can tell you the Marantz PM95 in class A mode was better then the LA-1 but again not much better.Kenwood was at it's peak in sound quality when LA-1 & LD-1 was manufactured.Thanks

Hmmm... It’s a crazy, subjective hobby we have!

Great to hear we have people appreciate vintage audio. This unit is built by Accuphase and built like a tank. Very nice midrange. Selling due to paying for Wadia WT 2000s transport.

      Item Condition: Excellent 9 - 9.5/10 Shipping Options: Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Adelaide State: South Australia Payment Method: EFT, Paypal Reason for selling: No longer required Further information: 
      Bought new from miniDSP September 2016. It has been an integral part of my system until recently and provides a serious upgrade for the money. Highly recommended.  
      It has been upgraded to Dirac 2.0 and includes the supplied remote. Also included is a bound set of printed instructions. I now use Roon convolution instead which reduced the box count. 
       
      Please note: The price does not include the calibrated Umik-1 microphone. These are easily available but happy to talk about it.
       
      You will have to change over the licence but that is apparently quite straight forward. miniDSP advise changeover can take a couple of working days.

      Price: $300 Item Condition: excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Redland Bay State: Queensland Payment Method: PayPal Cash Reason for selling: Got an amp/dac all in one
      Extra Info:
       A few tiny marks (edge), not easy to see, no original box. Normal retail price new is $800.
      A very good sounding amp with two crossfeed stages and two gain settings.
       
      Tech Data copied from Meyer:
      Sure, from the outside the CLASSIC looks very modest and plain. However, technically and sonically this is the best and most advanced amplifier that we've ever build.

      Of course this amplifier also uses the concept of active balanced headphone ground. Within this concept each headphone connection wire carries an additional signal such that the sum of the potentials of the wires equals zero. This strongly minimizes the energies stored and released in the electrical fields inside the headphone cable when an audio-signal is applied. The influence of the wire on the sound is thus reduced.

      Moreover, with active ground pollution of the internal signal ground by strong driving currents is eliminated and the power-supply-rejection-ratio at the output stages is strongly improved. Thus the best conditions are given for a clean and undistorted sound.

      Active balanced headphone ground offers most of the advantages of a true balanced headphone setup without the need of balanced connections. It can be used with any conventional dynamic or magneplanar headphone.

      The volume control is technically very sophisticated. The position of the potentiometer is measured with the use of an AD-converter. The output of this converter is then used to switch a bank of relais to set the proper volume level. There are a total of 64 levels which allows for very small stepsizes and a very analog feeling. The advantages of this concept are strongly reduced channel-imbalances and a much cleaner and more detailed sound. The use of a conventional stereo-potentiometer does add its own sonic signature which is now prevented.

      The amplification section is build around AD797 opamps biased into class-A. For the output stages BUF634 buffer amplifiers are used. These integrated circuits are very fast and thus allows the output signals to follow the input signals very closely. The amp is DC-coupled and any capacitors found in the signal path are of the highest quality polypropylen and polystyrol.

      A very extensive powersupply, a large number of power-regulators, and a total filter capacity of 80.000 microF (!!) assure the best working conditions for any part of the circuitry.

      The built-in crossfeed filter is a frequency-extended version of the natural crossfeed found in previous CORDA amplifiers and provides even better imaging. It also offers three intensity levels (Stereo, medium, high). To compensate for the psycho-acoustic bass-loss a separate switch allows to slightly increase lower-frequencies.

      Technically the CLASSIC is an extremely advanced headphone amplifier and offers excellent value-for-money!
