Krell KAV-280cd CD Player with Quad 24-Bit Burr-Brown PCM-1704's

$1,499

This gorgeous CD player from the legendary Krell company is clad in all aluminum and utilizes the highest grade components available at the time.  It's an absolute pleasure to look at even when not in use. 

Simple to operate, yet has all the features you're likely to need, including balanced XLR outputs and coax/optical digital outputs in case you'd like to use your own DAC. 

This CD player is highly-sought after for not only the famous over-the-top engineering and build quality that Krell is famous for - but also for the renowned 4 x Burr-Brown PCM-1704 24-Bit DAC chipset that many agree is one of the best sounding DAC's ever made. It is ultra smooth, with great bass, and is extremely musical.

The display is well lit and bright, the disc drawer operates smoothly and without a hitch, and the controls are responsive and quick. We tested this unit with a bunch of different CD's and it passed with flying colors. In our listening room it presented a true and exact rendition of the CD being played without any coloration or distortion. 

The faceplate is in mint condition without any signs of use or wear.  The top and sides have a few scratches on them as pictured but still look very presentable.

The originally included remote control is not pictured, but is included with your purchase.
