For sale is one of the best CD players ever made - Marantz CD-80
As far as I know, this unit is only bettered by Marantz CD-7 (around A$7k) and CD-94 Mk2 (approaching A$2k in top condition).
Originally it had two minor faults: the globes that illuminate CD compartment during play were blown and the CD tray used to spontaneously auto-retract. Globes were replaced and limit switches that caused auto-retraction cleaned.
I have another one of these that's even better (MINT), with manual and remote which I may consider selling soon for $300 more.
Unit is in very good condition with original Philips CDM-1 Mk2 mechanism still in place, playing both pressed CDs and CD-Rs with ease and reading "Table of Contents" in under 1 second. This really is not a surprise as CDM-1 Mk2 is believed to be the best and most reliable mechanism ever. It features real glass lens and friction-less, magnetic swing arm laser assembly.
Variable output is via motorized Japanese ALPS potentiometer (doesn't limit the dynamic range of DAC).
The DAC chip is now legendary Philips TDA-1541A S1 Single Crown. The player weighs 15kg.
6 voltage regulators, ELNA Cerafine caps in both power supply and audio section.
They just don't make them like that any more...
There are some minor marks on the front panel (display glass) which are very hard to photograph, but not really visible under normal circumstances and only seen under close inspection.
For local, cash paying purchasers I offer unconditional 12 months warranty.
Please see the after the repair video of this player on my uTube Solaris Technical channel:
