Classe CDP-202 compact disc and DVD player in very good condition, with all original Classe packaging for sale. Includes a brand new Classe factory original laser and transport assembly. Chassis is in great condition, with minimal signs of use. Plays redbook CDs, DVD-A, and DVD-Video, with innovative touch-screen controller (one of the very first home stereo products to ever feature this type of interface) which also acts as a mini-video screen. Unit has approximately only 60 hours of usage on the new laser assembly, (primarily for audio playback, although video playback on the new transport has of course been tested, as well).
In terms of sound quality of digital playback, this unit easily competes with the Ayre CX-7e, Esoteric UZ-1 and K-05, Primare CD31, Musical Fidelity A3.5, and the current top models from OPPO, and actually even outshines several of these by a wide margin. (All observations are personal opinion informed by prior extended personal ownership of these and other CD players).
Enduring, very positive industrywide reviews (all viewable online):
"Putting aside its stunning looks...the Classé cdp-202 offers a user-friendly interface and superb sound from all disc formats other than SACD... And you gotta love its touchscreen display and control interface. Very nice, Classé. Very nice."
From What Hi-Fi?
"...the Classé is every bit as revealing, engaging and downright exhilarating as a player at this elevated price level should be. Give it a listen!"
From Hi-Fi News
"What the overall effect boils down to is impressive presence, especially the rich lower registers, held in check by beautiful tonal balance. No part of the sonic landscape dominates ... This component seems to have been voiced by someone who loves natural sounds, especially vocals and unplugged instruments."
"...this unabashedly stereo audiophile offering does tick all the right boxes. And, wisely, it errs on the side of musicality when it could easily have veered towards the clinical. So if you are looking for your ‘final’ player, put this one on the list."
This unit is factory original US-based voltage, being sold from my personal collection, (i.e. a private party, not a dealer / retailer / reseller, so no warranty expressed nor implied). Shipped in original factory carton with factory remote control, power cord, and bound copy of owner's manual. Buyer pays PayPal and all other transaction fees.
