Just got given a whole load of Hi-Fi gear from a loft clearance. Googled the MASH to see if I might get a tenner for it. Read the reviews here and promptly swapped my Marantz 67SE for the MASH . . . . . . totally blows the Marantz out of the water. I'm a very happy chappie and totally free !!

3D, Breathtaking Clarity, bass deeper than you think, perfect timing. I bought this at a very reasonable price; i dont think the person knew how good this player was. I have had a a Marantz CD63 KI Sig and a Sony CDP930 and this thing wipes the floor with the both despite being older. If you find one buy it immediately.

Note: if you buy one and starts skipping just give it a good old clean inside and I dont just mean the laser which is blue (impressive)

Perfect partner with my Audiolab 8000P and 8000C

Strength:

Treble, quality build, "golden" disk tray, aluminium front panel, warranty, display which is very informative and looks really beautiful, much more...

Weakness:

I barely managed to fit my receiver on it because it''s very "deep" in longitude.

I bought this CD some time ago and I must say it way quite expensive. But it is certainly worth the money. Before this CD I had used low quality Technics SL-PG490 and an old Sony (which was really good, but its laser heads were ruined from old age). I must note that I use it with an old Sony STR-7065A receiver (4x90W musical power) and Ei (Electronical Industry) Nis AS 803 speakers (80/110W). Well, this Technics''s treble sounds really amazing, and much "smoother" than usual CD players. Build is quite high quality, but I would like to see a better tray mechanism from Technics (my old Sony had a tray that would open and close without making any sound!). Also, the remote is not very good and buttons on it are very irresponsive. Not that it''s bad, but I would really like to see an aluminium 300g remote control (but I don''t think they make them anymore... except B&O and few others). Overall, it''s a very good CD player and it has two-year warranty in Europe. Also it''s very respective that Technics made it in Germany.

Similar Products Used: An old model by Sony, but I can''t remember the name. She was a real beauty...

Strength:

Sound, features, look(?)

Weakness:

When use some CDs skip can be slow

OK, I have no idea what Oscar is talking about.
Mine is SL-PS7 (the new version of SL-PS770D), but including the new Re-master function (24bit processing) and having a new type of transformer (Technics said that is better :|) and excluding VBO.
The model seems to be sales only in Europe.
Look: nice, but faceplate is plastik. The THCB (a mixture of materials on base plate) is a nice touch there. The 'play' and 'pause' buttons are provided with leds. Display is informative, lots of buttons (Japanise, yeah), made in Germany ('course), the lid contains a metal piece(!)
Features: Advanced-MASH (S/N=114dB, DR=104dB), Re-master; functions: autocue, AB repeat, program, an advanced edit function, output level adjustement.
Sound: clear, crisp, somehow dry. When Re-master is on the sound remain the same (at least in my set-up). ?:|
Remote: a very commercial one, but works good enough.
What make it great: can play seriously scratched CDs.
What can I say more - if you have in mind to get a CD-player under $300 this is a real bargain - don't look at Sony's or even other Technics alternatives (those cheap-looking CD-changers), leave Philips aside, even Marantz CD4000 or CD5000.
Man, that's all for now.

Strength:

Clear and detailed. Quiet in operation.

Weakness:

No second analogue output for connection to CD-direct on tapedeck. Dull display.

The player sounds very detailed and precise. It sounds great and for this price it is the best thing to buy at the moment. The player is very quiet. It produces no disturbing extra noises. Operation is very easy with the large and clear buttons. The display is a bit dull and I miss the music calander layout of my Sony. However it is very easy to operate. Connections are gold platted.

Oscar   an Audio Enthusiast [Feb 21, 1998]

Well....This CD is an old sucker! It´s from 1993 or something like that.. It has a very harsh and hard, cold sound. The soundstage is very "3D" with lots of detail. The bass is a bit shy and the player sucks bigtime.. If you catch one on sale, don´t buy it!!!
