it depends.ten years ago i bought the third nagra cdc ever made,actual list €16500.lately i began to suspect that the cdpro drive stuttered on some cdrs.i sent it back to nagra where,after three weeks it came back with a brand new drive,a software upgrade and the old drive which had proved blameless on examination.price including shipping was well less than a tenth of list.draw your conclusions
