Offered for sale here is a classic beast, the Denon DCD1560 cd player.
While a little rough cosmetically(although front of unit is really nice), this is an unusually well-preserved player, internally.  This is to say that, unlike most Denon's of this era, the laser is in like new condition, health-wise, and effortlessly plays even my most beat up & transparent CD-R discs, as well as my best & worst CD's.
The player has just been completely & thoroughly serviced by me(I am Talking Dog Transducer Co.), a servicer with 40 years of experience in high end home & pro audio, many of those years as a Denon warranty servicer.  Both upper & lower tray loading belts have been replaced & loading mech lubricated, laser's linear motor tracking sled guide rails have been relub'd with precisely the proper spec grease/oil(vitally important to proper disc tracking over long term), optics cleaned, any suspect electrolytic capacitors replaced, all heat-generating components & other connections on all boards resoldered & then the whole player precisely aligned/adjusted.  While I was in there, I also deleted the unnecessary output dc blocking caps, for a nice improvement in sound.
Price is not a lot more than the cost of *proper* service, as done.  Yes, this does mean that a lot of these Denon players sold as "serviced" were not properly serviced & just had quick band-aid fixes.  I, on the other hand, don't do anything short of precisely right.
Aside from being a great sounding player, having BurrBrown PCM1701 r2r ladder dacs, it's also quite an excellent transport for use with a separate DAC.
As stated above & shown in photos, cosmetics are a bit rough, but 99% of scratches are top & side surfaces, so looks great on a shelf.
Auction includes player only.  No remote(but any Denon single-cd player remote will work fine with it) or etc.
Sold with my usual ONE YEAR WARRANTY.  
Will be packed...
