FS: Audio Analogue Paganini 192/24 CD Player w/ Remote
  Made in Italy.

A phenomenal CD player that rivaled quite a few of my best players.  ( Audio Research,  Theta, Sony ES, Oppo etc).   I'm continuing to downsize and the Paganini is up for sale.  here is the marketing blurb from their site along with specs.

-----

The CD Mechanism used is the Teac CD-5010A specifically developed for high end audio applications. it is characterized by a low jitter level on the S/PDIF output and by a very sturdy reading procedure. The leading-edge digital-to-analog conversion section is based on the extraordinary AD1896 sample rate converter that feeds a AKM D/A converter based on a very stable clock oscillator.

The AKM S/PDIF transceiver receives the data from the transport and buffers them to eliminate any jitter. Then, data are both delivered to the sample rate converter and re-transmitted to the S/PDIF digital output.

The output buffer/filter is based on high-speed lownoise op-amps and uses the best components in the filter section. The huge power supply is based on six separate supply lines fed by a toroidal transformer, completed by the SMSP supply that gives power to the control section.

The front panel features a new LCD display with high contrast and low power consumption, for reduced EMI towards the analog stages. Complete access to the CD player’s functionality is allowed by the seven-keys solid brass remote control. Great care has been used in the passive and active components selection, as usual for Audio Analogue.
