Musical Fidelity A5 CD Player, Reference Quality, Up Sampling 24Bit Valve Output

Recommended Posts

http://ebay.us/c6Un09

This is one of the best sounding CD players ever made. It not only up-samples 16 bit CD to 32 bits, but then outputs through a VALVE to generate it's open, articulate, natural sound that is unsurpassed. It would usually cost around £2000, and has had rave reviews since it came out.

Had one of these for a few years and can attest to the sonic quality, it was never fatiguing. 

Think I sold mine for around £500 so I cant imagine this would sell for much more.... a real bargain.

I also had one and like you would attest to its sonic qualities. Not sure what I sold mine for but currently they are achieving around the £600 mark.

Just had a look at this item and it said it was won at £490 but then I noticed it had been relisted, with a starting price of £480 and buy it now of £800.  So still available.

Hi

Yes it is, I had a time waster from Vietnam wanting me to mail it to him! I also bought a new Musical Fidelity remote for it as I had lost the previous one.
