Marantz CD80 CD player

Part of the "smaller" Philips/Marantz CD players of the good years, still made in Belgium... and assembled in Japan by Marantz Japan. The product code is typically Philips : 74CD80/04B or 04G for the rare champagne version. (This particular unit type is 74CD80/05B).

Despite the "small" list price, half that of a CD-95, inside is full of treasures :
CDM1MkII Philips CDM drive, two TDA1541A S1 converters and a one-piece diecast chassis la CD104 (with more holes in it, though), 3mm aluminium top and bottom plates, heavyweight diecast sideburns and solid aluminium feet.

The CD-80 sold extremely well and remained on sale much longer in Europe than elsewhere.

End users' reviews:

If your CD tray does not open or needs to be thumped to retrieve your disc, it may be the drive belt is broken or slipping and needs to be replaced. We have a large range or replacement drive belts available.
