Default Near MINT Marantz CD85

I'm raising funds for a new and very expensive project and offering for sale some very cherished pieces from my collection.

Here is my Marantz CD85. One down from the CD94. Slimmer than the CD80. CDM1 MkII mech, single crown TDA1541A DAC. Rosewood cheeks. In as near to mint condition as makes no odds. Sadly no box, remote, transit screws or manual. One sold in Europe last month for 406 plus shipping. It had a box and manual.

eBay Link

A good example in the UK made nearly 200 in a "must go" sale.

eBay Link

Mine is nicer that that one, and I am offering it for 300 ONO. Insured, signed for, Courier is a requirement and will charged at cost. Happy to post to Europe. Happy to demonstrate (near Jct 17, M4). I will also send some hi-res photos and even video to potential buyers.

Thanks for looking.

Jon

PS My CD 80 is up next.

No longer for sale - I can't bear the thought of parting with this player!

OK, OK. Pressure on me about the size of the collection.

The CD85 is back on sale. So is the CD80. And a nice CD50.

My lesser Philips players will be stripped for the chips and mechs.

Any interest out there?

CD80 has 73 pictures here: CD80 pictures by jonclancy - Photobucket

It's in good condition with light scratches and a missing side cap. Mechanically excellent and very lightly modded. I'm looking for 200 for the CD80.

Here is a CD85 on sale for a whole lot more: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Marantz-CD...-/290635090216

Cheers

Jon

Man, just sell, don't look back...

Just rip your CD collection to WAV or FLAC, get a good DAC and USB to I2S transport like WaveIO or EXAU2I and you'll never want to go back to the Marantz... Unless the habit of getting up and and swapping CDs make you feel good...

Forget the physical medias... Thing of the past and huge waste of space! Store them in a box somewhere...

Do
