WTB: Silver faced SACD/CD/Universal disc player

I am working on putting together a small rig to display at LSAF 2018. I have pretty much everything else needed but would like to put a decent quality CDP/SACD player into the mix. All the other gear is silver faced so would like something to match.

Budget is the word of the day here as the most expensive piece in this whole project is the DIY speakers I am building for the display.

Let me know what you have.

Thank you.

    All I have is one of those cheap (but once rather renowned) Toshiba DVD players (SD-3950). I once had a big, bad, silver early Sony -- but it didn't work :(

    I am guessing the Toshiba would be of zero interest (and it doesn't, if memory serves, like to play CD-Rs)... but if you'd like it, it's yours for the cost of shipping (it's not heavy). On the bright side, it does have its remote.

    There were many modifications/"upgrades" published for this player back when... but this one is "stock" (as found at the good ol' Harvard town dump... umm, I mean, transfer station).

    some discussion of the mods for the SD-3950:

    Strictly as an aside, the aforementioned Sony. It is too bad it was DOA. A post-mortem exam revealed that its last meal was a Kenny G CD. I'm not a pathologist, but I suspect that was the cause of death. :neutral:

    ... or, if you're thinkin' about going a little "outside the box", with intense hipster cred -- how about an 8-track? ;)

    I just placed an order and will be converting an Onkyo C-7030 to match my silverface dining setup.
    Will you post pics of your project?
  • I checked in the storage and I have a Toshiba SD-4960 player.
    The remote is at large...
    but you want it, same deal as Doc hardy, you cover shipping.

    Got to get the speakers done first...building a set of Seas driver based DIY bookies...but I will keep my progress updated in the DIY forum.

    I recently bought the silver Teac Cd-1000. If I had a line on a black one, I would let it go!

    Ended up finding a literally like new Denon DVD-2900 in silver from Canuckistan. And it was dirt cheap too.

    Now on to the next parts of this project... *evil laugh*

    I'm going to laugh when all of a sudden you need to switch to BLACK faceplates *evil grin*

    Literally everything else already in this particular system has silver faces.

    My "big" 2 channel rig is all (trigger warning) black face.

    System integration is very important. It is the Twenty-first Century, after all...
