Proceed PDT 3 Vintage CD Transport "The Toaster", With Original Remote and Box


I lusted after this CD transport while I was in college where it received the nickname "the toaster".

Thinking back I'm not quite sure why since it doesn't quite resemble a toaster in its form factor. Perhaps it was just because of its unusual shape at a time where all CD player were wide and low.

It took years for me to save up enough money to purchase a used one, but once I did it served as my primary player for almost 20 years. I couldn't find a single fault with it and it wasn't until I eventually moved on to the Sony SCD-1 flagship SACD/CD player that I replaced it.

This CD transport was tested thoroughly where it performed admirably. It tracks fast and accurately, and the display is bright and clear.

This listing includes the original remote AND the original box!
