I will post the pics I took yesterday, because I am considering putting it on ebay. It has a flip down face and is protected by the ESN network. There is no wattage output which is usually the case with high dollar cd players, so a amp is required. Most cd players are 5v, this player is 8v which will not make your amps work as hard and give you better sound quality. I personally have not heard a cleaner sound, that is why I have always used Eclipse.
