that's sweet!! you still own/use it?
anyway, thanks. it was PIONEER's very first "ELITE" series audiophile-grade CD player,
their 1987/1990 PD-91.
it weighs about 26lbs. and listed at $1300.00USD back in it's day.
it has a magnificent sound quality, and has been claimed to meet/exceed
most any sub-$1k.USD CD player made today.
mine is unique, AFIK however, as it possesses the solid aluminum top panel
and solid steel outboard power transformer support foot that was included
on the japanese market-only PD-3000 variant, of which the U.S. stock PD-91
subtitutes a sheet metal top bonnet and hollow polycarbonate transformer foot.
it also possesses the PD-3000's heavy resin-filled main isolator feet, which were provided empty/hollow on the PD-91 model.
these upgrades were made from a dead/irreparable PD-3000 i acquired from a fellow audiophile/collector,
which i assume had bought it in japan long ago, or picked it up via RINKYA on the net...
