Bottom Line:   
To put it simply: if you own an aging Copland 288, buy a new clock for it. I now have Lclock xo3, it totally renewed the sound, which used to be vague and inconsistent.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this giant of player and I am very satisfied with. CDA 288 offer smooth and open with lot of details highs, extraordinary natural mids and wery deep and tight lows. Soundstage is so wide, deep and high. I prefer Classical, Rock{Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple etc...},Blues and Ambiental music,and in my opinion CDA 288 is made for.
My present system is:
Primare A 30.1
Copland CDA288
Diapason Adamantes III
Monster Cable S 1,5
MIT Terminator 2

Bottom Line:   
High Tech, no doubt, the CDA 288 uses a Teac CMK-4 transport, PD100 HDCD filter and a unique application for 2 PCM63's per channel - used not dual differential but staggerred - attaining something like a 16 times oversampling.
Its also built - and I mean built.

It s sound - is a wonderfully smooth an coherent one with a big bass. Not the last word in rhythm and timing but very boppy and flowing, a clear midrange and depth like hell.

I'd say 4 stars - 5 to me would be something really mind boggling.
