"For me the CD-77 is everything I could reasonably have hoped for in a CD player with a performance that exceeded already high expectations. Build quality is excellent, sound quality is excellent and the price is excellent – not exactly the most inspired writing but sometimes it’s more effective just to call a spade a spade; I bought a CD-77 myself, I’m not one to be impressed by claims or new technologies but this player is old school meets new and something special – anything which manages to prise a significant amount of hard earned cash from my clammy fingers has to be special nowadays, but if you think this review is, shall we say, quite complimentary, read on.
After completing this review a couple of months ago, along with an unwelcome price increase due to the devalued UK pound, a whole raft of upgrades have been applied across the AMR product range (77 to 77.1) to compensate. The AM-77 has benefited most, but the CD-77 has also had it’s performance ramped up even further, and guess who’s sitting here now with a big grin on his face penning a review of the new spec system?" - Dagogo
