Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

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

Would you buy a hi-fi CD player that came to the market approximately in 2010, in the price range $1000 - $2000 (the current used, or B-stock price)?

Two things to consider.

[1] Is the digital audio technology in the product competitive with that in current products? For comparison, the current US new product price of Chord 2Qute DAC is about $1300.

[2] The transport mechanism may not be repairable any more, because the parts are not in production now.

P. S.

I can get a Creek Destiny 2 CD player at about $1350. The seller says it is in great condition, and has factory box though the box is dirty and worn.
