It sounded like it was trying and then said "error"

Summary: I unpacked the player, hooked it up and the unit wouldn't play my CD. It sounded like it was trying and then said "error". I repeated it with about 9 other CDs. This thing was a piece of junk on arrival. What a disappointment. I returned it for a refund.
Summary: I am an old Marantz lover from the sixties so when I needed a new cd player, it was the logical choice. I have a Marantz home theatre receiver and wanted a matching cd player. This is a very stylish and high quality unit. It sound great and looks great and the price was right.
Summary: Sounds good. Not sure if I discerned a significant improvement, but, either way I put it through a week of 24hrs/day burn-in by setting an mp3 disk on repeat. It sounds livelier than my PS1 ( dubbed "audiophile" for its warmth). I use it on a dedicated music room with stereo only.
The transport is quiet and the display is excellent, especially compared to my Cambridge audio azure unit

Summary: This is an outstanding player at any price but especially as listed. Compared with my reference player, a Meridian 508.20, it does lack some control in the base and warmth in the midrange but these are minor weaknesses.
Super deal on a dedicated CD player with built a built in DAC and headphone amp.

Summary: Great deal on a very nice and well built single dedicated CD player. This is a super price on a player that is loaded with features you will not find for this price. Item arrived double boxed and undamaged.
