The box is no different I think, but the serial number sticker on the back says "99 CDP-2". This is how mine looks and I have verified this to be the external differentiator in conversation with the US distributor.

The Quad 99 CD-P (version 1) does have variable volume control.
I think Digsmithd is confusing the Quad 99 CD-P with the original Quad 99 CD player. The Quad 99 (non P version) was not a Quad design, it was sourced from another designer. It was not regarded very highly like the Quad 99 CD-P and now the CD-P2.
I can't image why this would confuse anyone. Quad 99 CD player, Quad 99 CD-P and Quad 99 CD-P2. How could anyone possibly be confused?!!!
