Just be aware that if you experience any problems with the unit, you may have a very hard time getting it repaired. The company is kaput and parts and service documents are hard to come by if at all.

Buyer beware.
wow,i didnt know that,cancel that thought.
Not only is the company long gone, the stuff wasn't very reliable in the first place.
I believe that Dusty Vader (who used to be the main service person with AA) is able to help with reapair issues. His comapny is called Channel Islands Audio.

Does anyone have any opinions/thoughts on the Audio Alchemy ACD II CDP/Transport?
I found one that is in very good physical condition and works well. The CD tray looked nice and operated with no issues. The price isn't bad either. I was thinking about using it in a secondary system.
I can't find much info on it in the archives or when I search the internet. Is there anything in particular I should be on the lookout for w/ the ACD 2? Any comments/feedback are appreciated. Thanks in advance.
