***There are some "surface" markings & "surface" scratches (not indented) on top of the CD Player which were there when I received the item which is why I rated the condition as 8-Very Good. The last photo shows some of the markings. The photos were taken with my MacBook Pro "mirror camera".***

The CDS27 features the TI/Burr Brown PCM1794 DAC chip (±) (up to 24-bit, 192KHz). When combined with a linear phase Bessel output filter and precision re-clocking system, the CDS27 seeks to achieve exceptional audio quality. The unit’s power supply is also specially designed to maximize performance, as do the discreet sub-regulated power supplies on the drive mechanism and audio and DAC boards. UPnP and CIFS compatibility also makes integration into computer network based systems a breeze. Arcam has developed their own iOS app for streaming music called MusicLife. It is a free app that is available now on the iTunes Store. MusicLife is designed to be easier to use, faster and more stable than other similar apps. It’s Bluetooth compatible and supports playing media from most any Bluetooth

Some audiophiles use the DAC part of this CD/ SACD player when listening to iTunes or DSD file for example. Burr Brown DAC chips (now Texas Instruments) are highly renowned for their quality amongst the audio world.

***There are surface markings & barely perceptible "surface"scratches (not indented) on top of the CD Player which were there when I received the item*** You have to shine a light on them to really notice.

This is the reason why I rated the item "8-Very Good" because it could very well rate 9-Excellent but I like to think of myself as an honest individual and seller. If not for this "minor" setback I would be asking $900.00.

The photos were taken with my MacBook Pro "mirror camera".

***There are some surface markings some barely perceptible "surface" scratches which are apparent when a bright light is shined on top of the CD Player. These were there when I received the item & the reason why I rated the condition of the item as a 8-Very Good. It could easily be a 9-Excellent.
