Cambridge Audio CD3

Classic High-Spec CD Player

Designed by the legendary Stan Curtis, equipped with 4 x TDA1541A D/A converters and the excellent Philips CDM-1 Mk2 mechanism, this beautiful machine is in excellent physical condition, tested and in full working order. This has no problem playing our badly scratched test CD without missing a beat.

You will find a huge amount of information about this almost mythical CD player on the internet.

This comes with mains cable and remote control. It’s not the original remote control but it works.

It also comes with transport locking screws which MUST be removed before use (see pictures 18 & 19). For extra safe shipping we have also padded the floating laser with some blue foam to prevent it flopping around during shipping (see picture 17). This also MUST be removed before use. 4 screws and the top case can be removed. Better safe than sorry..!
