RV HIFI says:
Superb Marantz quality, the CD-53 sounds sweet, the music if full of life. Up-dating the power supply and audio output capacitors made a noticeable difference to the sound, you can compare this unit to many high end players that are worth 10 times more! Another unique feature is that its not black, back the day (1990’s) the hifi buffs all wanted black gear, the Champaign ratio range was about 1 out 10.
