Make/Model: MARANTZ CD50 Special Edition
Photos: Are of actual item on offer.
General: Excellent, a few light marks, and the lid has a few light marks
Front Panel: Excellent, the matt black plastic looking pretty good for the front panel.
Display: Is very bright and readable, no major marks or scratches, a couple slight ones only just noticeable close up.
Included Extras: Mains power cable/plug. No manual or remote. No original box but we package in strong boxes with polystyrene corners for delivery.
Additional Information: Has very fast access times to tracks, very ‘tweekable’ by enthusiasts, and many modern CD players fail to improve on this model, despite a rather lightweight feel to the build. Incorporating the TDA1541A converter extracts the best sound out of CDs. Also has analog and coaxial digital outputs. Some functions are only available via the remote control, unfortunately not supplied this time.
IMPORTANT: This Cd player has transport keys under the CD player which lock the CD draw for safe transport and need to be removed before switching on. There is only one transport key included with this particular item, the other has been lost but this will be sufficient.
Testing: Has been cleaned, inspected inside for any obvious problems, laser lens cleaned. Fully tested with all outputs in our small workshop along with all switches and works great. Plays CD’s (obviously) plus CD-R’s. Also played our slightly and heavily scratched test CD’s which other CD players have problems with.
