Luxman DP-07

Like the DA-07 mate, the DP-07 CD drive was awarded accolades aplenty.

Resting on a special damping ceramic base (FRP), the 07 weighs 20 kilos. The top lid is a 12mm slab of aluminium, the laser assembly rests on another slab of diecast aluminium and the frame itself is made of a one-piece diecast aluminium. Each circuit function is isolated in its own compartment ; the top which receives the CD is irregularily shaped to further avoid resonances. Plus PC-OCC wiring, 70µ tracks - and more.
Strangely, unlike the very successful D-500X's contemporary player which used a Philips CDM CDM3, the mechanism and laser assembly of the DP-07 were supplied by Sony (KSS-190A) - mighty.
Available outputs are coaxial, TOS and ST with a switch to alter the level of the optical signal.

One of the most lavish CD combos ever produced which, however, sales-wise, didn't cut much in the groove of Sony's CDP-R1 bestseller : quite rare in Japan, extremely rare elsewhere but a few EU and US models were made.
