Yamaha CDX – 396 CD Player. Fully revitalized.
In 1887 Torakusu Yamaha built his first keyboard wind instrument. Ten years later Torakusu established Nippon Gakki Co. Ltd. and produced pianos and reed organs, which were rewarded in 1904 with Honorary Main Reward at the World Fair in Saint Louis. In the following years, the company extended its offer of musical instruments and produced pianos, acoustic guitars, trumpets, percussions, electric guitars, etc. The company also began to produce audio equipment. The first turntables were created in the 1920s, but especially valued hi-fi devices (mainly amplifiers and CD players) and high-quality loudspeakers that complemented them were created in the 70’s and 80’s. In 1955, as the Yamaha Motor Company, the company also dealt with the production of two-wheelers, and from the early 70’s, professional sound equipment currently known as Yamaha Pro Audio.
The Yamaha CDX – 396 provides high-quality music reproduction typical of this company’s equipment.
The enclosure has been completely revitalized. The top cover has been cleaned and painted using the automotive wet painting technique. Black varnish was used and secured with a clear matte one. The new teak side boards give the player an elegant look. Remote control included.
