RE: inroduced in ~ 2010, $1-2k, used CD player: worth?

I checked and the DVD mechanism that is the transport in this player is still available. Not expensive at circa $70.

The price you quote of $1350 doesn't seem very attractive to me if it is for a used one ( the description implies it is or was perhaps a shop demonstrator given the worn box). When it came out 7 or 8 years ago it was priced at 1400 gbp including tax @20% over here. That should have made it around $1700 new but I am aware that US distributors do seem to load the price somewhat so maybe it still looks good to you.

However think also on the fact that its replacement and current model the Evolution 50 is $1495 and the more complex Evolution 100 with USB input to 24/192 is under $2K. Unless the Destiny 2 has some special quality for you why would you buy a used one at the price offered when the new one costs so little more?
