The First Ever Marantz CD Player

Marantz badged version of the Philips CD100, the first European built CD player, in a champagne gold case. Manufactured by Philips Netherlands and Belgium.

Having been left unused for several years, when connected-up we were pleasantly surprised to find that it appears to work just fine and sounds very nice indeed.

Using twin TDA1540D DAC’s and CDM-0 mechanism, this legendary CD player is in excellent physical condition (see close-up pictures) and full working order. We played this for two full 8 hour days, using many of our badly scratched test CD’s & CDR’s and it performed perfectly, without missing a beat.

These are hardly ever seen. If you’re looking for one you won’t see another in this condition AND in working order.
