Thanks for your posts.

The $1350 CD player with dirty and worn factory box is said to be a B-stock item with 1-year manufacturer warranty. The seller is said to be an authorized retailer for Creek, Krell, etc.

Here is some comparison with a current product.

Creek Audio Evolution 100 CD Player

- The remote does not control power on/standby.

- Program function is not enabled.

- The player does not process de-emphasis (Stereoplay 05/2016)

- Jitter 385 ps in Stereoplay 05/2016. (In the same article, Quad Artera Play (2000 Euro) showed 317 ps from CD).

- There are vent holes on the top steel plate, which would draw in dust, which may affect the lifespan of the transport mechanism.

Creek Audio Destiny 2 CD Player

- The remote controls power on/standby.

- Program function is enabled.

- The player processes de-emphasis (Stereoplay 11/2010)

- Jitter 152 ps in Stereoplay 11/2010. This seems to be a good figure for a CD player or DAC without "upsampling." (In the same article, Moon CD .5 showed 172 ps, and Ayon CD 1s showed 273 ps.) (For more jitter comparison (Stereoplay 11/2010): 174 ps, Resteck MDAC+, 1610 Euro; 170 ps and 173 ps(USB), T+A DAC 8, 1850 Euro (
