Sony SCD-XA777ES SACD player.

Absolutely superb. Many people think that if this player is modded it's still better than most modern SACD players. One of the few rare SACD players with 5.1 output. Heck it's so cheap I might pick it up myself :)

Its from the same ebay user, so perhaps he has relisted it.

yep, its the same. there were no bids originally (my link), so he has relisted it at a lower price (Keith_W's link).

theres also a black SCD-XA9000ES that has been listed and relisted countless times over the last few months. i think the person dropped it to about $3800 in the end, but still it passed in. i cant see it listed anymore, so i guess they finally gave up.

There is no way the XA-9000ES would sell for $3800! When Sony stopped production, the Sony shops were clearing them out for less than $2000. I wouldn't pay more than $1500 for a used XA-9000ES. Having said that, it is a better player than the 777ES.

agreed, i saw one in Sony Central for $1800 (new of course), so i think $3800 is far too steep. i did actually let the seller know about this initially, but never heard a reply and they kept listing for the same money (initially about $4200, eventually dropping to $3800).

oh well, i hope they didnt pay full RRP for it in the first place!

Not sure whats going on there , I thought these were sold the other day , may be the sale fell through or the seller may have a few pairs. May be some one had a biamped system. Hmmm

Bl00dy hell. It potentially draws more power (3kw) than 99% of us can supply from normal GPO (2400w, 10amp)

ooh i got something on ebay!!! Pioneer A-9 Integrated Amplifier![/b]

I take it you've got something "for sale" on ebay, rather than you "got" something on/from ebay. I only say that cause there's still 9 odd days to go.

Interesting looking device and I bet it wasn't cheap when new in 81-82.

This looks rather interesting. Wonder what it will go for. Interesting how they don't give their location apart from "Australia".

Hes in Melbourne, ive bought off of him before. Good guy with some of the best gear to grace ebay aus.

I personally like these Dynaudio's and if you wanted 2k speakers now could certainly do a lot worse.

Yes, I can confirm that. He is a nice guy and good to buy stuff from. Just dont listen too deeply to his advice on what else to get cos he can be a bit biased, but all salespeople are to some extent.

Those Stax headphones look real nice, if only I had the money.

McIntosh Power and Pre Amplifier MC402 and C2200

Not exactly cheap, but nice gear none the less[/b]

I thought that step down transformers were not a good idea for high end gear as they reduce the 240v to 120v OK but leave the frequency at 50hz rather than the 60hz that the gear was designed to handle. This leads to the gear being unduly stressed and running hotter than normal.
