I've met the man a couple of times. Probably not worth putting that in the auction. He wouldn't understand, even if he could read the bigger words.

I never warmed to cd immediately and found the early discs and players to leave me cold.Really enjoyed my turntable better.Now its much closer with cd taking the lead with availability ,cost,and sound .

Ah, so true.

 

My father in law left me his Pioneer Elite PD-65 player, and it sounds great. He didnt use it much, and only had half a dozen CDs. It gives my A3 CD/A3.24 combo a run for its money all by its lonesome. I must try it with the DAC...

Indeed Owen. Having a large shelf full of old "silverware" is all well and good, but it's best enjoyed with friends.

My first 'serious' CDP was a Sony X555ES and it was extremely good – however, following a long series of house moving exercises, the normally very reliable laser began to play up and I quickly discovered that it was apparently manufactured from that rare substance generally known as 'unobtanium.' Alas, the Sony's remains were unceremoniously binned during the obligatory clear-out prior to yet another house move.

Damn you! I could have used those spares. A lot going through the work room at the moment.

Wow. My dad had one of those in the kitchen for as long as I remember, talk about nostalgia. Replaced it with a Bose Wave of all things.

I had a Sony CDP X5000. Quite a beautiful machine, top loading, puck and billet alloy. I regret selling it and don't think I got the best from it with I/C's etc.
