This belongs to lovely chap in the beautiful country of Wales.
It's a commercial CD player, favored (briefly) by the beeb and independent local radio stations in the late 80's , early 90's. This one dates from 1988.
The -P version was specifically for broadcast use, and instead of the large slider on the right being for pitch control, it's a fader. The pitch control is the small knob on the top right.
Rumour has it the poor things gained a reputation for being a finicky, requiring the CD to be spotless, and was possibly responsible for more "dead-air" back then than anything else. Sad really, because the spec is fantastic, Burr-brown PCM54HP DAC's and Technic's successful "Class AA" bits and bobs.
All this needed was a bit of a service. The laser is fantastic and should give plenty of good service back in the motherland!
