• Disc format: CD
• Digital converter: TDA1541
• CD Mechanism: CDM-4/11
• Frequency response: 2Hz to 20kHz
• Signal to Noise Ratio: 96dB
• Channel separation: 93dB
• Total harmonic distortion: 0.003%
• Line output: 2V
• Dimensions: 420 x 86 x 425mm
• Weight: 3kg
• Year: 1988

This comes with mains cable, transport locks and a pair of RCA (Phono) signal output cables.

The transport locks are present and will be used for shipping. For additional safe transportation and in order to prevent the laser eye flopping around we have protected the laser with some foam wadding. (see last two pictures). This will have to be removed before powering-up. Undo four screws and remove the cover. Better safe than sorry.
