Audio Research CD1 Vintage Compact Disc Player, Full Kit
This is a great sounding vintage player from ARC and one of the few front loading units produced.
If your rack doesn't allow top loading this might be your only option from ARC.
A nice bright display, quick precise controls, and great redbook CD quality are a few of the heavyweight qualities of this player.
We just installed a new lens assembly and it's working like new after lots of testing on our bench and listening lab.
Your purchase includes the full kit like it came from ARC including the original box, remote, and manual.
