Default Anyone heard a Grundig Fine Arts M-100 CD Player?

I have the chance to buy one of these players quite cheaply. I have a strong recollection form somewhere that the 'Fine Arts' range was very highly regarded but I can't find find any specifics.

The one I'm referring to is the MT-100 and is a kind of gold/champagne colour. It looks about 3/4 width as if it came from a mini stack system.

Anybody heard one of these? Is the fine arts range similar to the Sony 'ES' range. i.e. is it a special flagship range?

Any help would be much appreciated.


Edit: Just worked out it is actually an M-100

Oops! My research may be more effective now.

Well, Here's a better pic:

A bitstream player with a Philips CDM 12.1 so at least a new laser would be easy to get hold of if necessary.

This player uses
TDA1549T (dac)
RC4560 (opamp)

I have the service manual, doesn't look anything special, power transformer is tiny.

You might find this thread of some interest:
Simple, good quality DAC

Hope this helps

Thanks James, your link was very helpful.

Perhaps it's not such a bargain after all.

It's quite a nice looking design so I was hoping that it would at least be a good candidate for mods.

Thanks again,
