Built with astonishing quality. This CD player is brilliant example from the past cold war.
However. I will be gratefully present both of them to auditor to hear those differences he would be interested in. I can forgive many of his transgressions[newer plastic version CDM12], but to have abandoned and denying industry benchmark of his biological sibling [CDM1] is nothing short of despicable .
I believe the power supplies mods has done a better job of understanding what the audiophiles truly needs and then to determining what the gaps are left behind the expectation, One of the challenging parts in the by including reclock /Clock mods in such confined space, we understand our targets and the cost also are very directional to a final Mod results.
Dude, you better pay attention...because mr CDM1 must be lecturing miss TDA1541 on how to produce music in a more origanic and elegant manner.We're all different degrees of nuts. The nuttiest will deny they're nuts

Sometimes though, no matter how much money you throw on a single CDP , you have to remind yourself, 'is it worth it'! But for such “TDA/CDM” pedigree they are definitely worth every coin sen.

So far we have seen some active participant in the sales and strong supports (Moki activities) recently helped the hifi4sale community to provide the opportunity for peoples to taste the best grown Analogue fruits from Musikal land unlike anyone has ever be the most passionate proponents as Tubeezator
with ORIGINAL CD94 remote control and manual
This is USA version marantz CD94. Not an asian model.
i converted it to 220V with CD960 trans,
I still keeping the original trans(very fresh one)
the difference is 100V and with extra thick bottom steel plate. Item extremely preserved. PCB board still shinning as NEW.side wood panel are fresh.
It was bought from USA, Owner stop playing it after tray has problem due to worn belt.Item preserve 30years under cold n dry environment,means No oxidation .No corrosion.[Probably the only and the best condition one in Johor & Malaysia maybe in SE Asia]
Press sell button due to lazy to collect/keep anymore[OLD statement]
I have no problem to continue keeping it and waiting for Rm5K offer!
Do U understood that CDps doesnt build in this way anymore.

The internal technology is the familiar Philips 16-bit 4x oversampling with separte DACs, powerful error correction and digital filtering. Additional attentiono here is paid to power supplies and audio circuitry, with extra internal screening. The frequency response was ruler flat, with the merest suggestion of HF ripples under our large scale magnification. Channel phase difference was zero due to the twin DACs, while channel balance was held to normal commercial tolerances. Seperation and distortion figures were truly outstanding, though the IM spectrogram does show some ultrasonic spuriae.
Error correction was very good on all tests, and resistance to shcok or vibration likewise. Mechanical noise was very low, and track acces time about average. The output level met the format sepcification, from a usefully low source impedance. Electrical noise levels were state-of-the-art, but the 0dB white noise test showed slight rounding at the top of the waveform, ultrasonic spuriae could have been lower, and the practical low level resolution was only 15 bits, a rather average result for an expensive machine.
The efforts that have gone into creating this machine have not been wasted, the expense being substantially vindicated by a very good sound quality rating. Retaining the fundamentally fine character of this 16-bit 4x oversampling chip set and losing nothing in dynamics, drama and bass drive, the Marantz CD94 is also clearly more restained, refined and good mannered. Giving a dependable sound that is easy to listen to, stereo perspectives were very good and the midband notably neutral, though there was a hint of laziness in the bass and treble.
massive cast-iron swing-arm glass-lense mechanisms still produce excellent sound and are virtually indestructible!!
this is (japan version cd94mk1)
comes with an original 110V transfo
currently it is on 220V transfo salvage from a spoiled philips CD960.
set looks like new (like 3 month old condition)
