"High calibre tube CD player"

Don't underestimate this CD player. It might not have the looks or styling of it's bigger brothers but that doesn't mean that it won't perform any less.

I blind tested both the CD-T80 and the CD-T100 at home and was surprised to find that I actually preferred the CD-T80. OK, so it doesn't have the top loading illuminated disc cover, the visible tubes, dual outputs or a tube driven headphone socket but that's why it doesn't cost as much and it can certainly give the CD-T100 a good run for it's money.

May be another sign of how good this player is, is it's resale availability. How many times for instance have you seen one of these for sale on eBay? I've seen two in a year. I've seen three CD-T300's listed in the last 3 months and Shanling only ever made 300 of them!
