FS Sony SCD XA777ES CD Player

Recommended Posts

SONY SCD-XA777ES CD PLAYER FOR SALE

Mint condition and works perfectly. No skips, jumps or failure to read/play CDs or SACDs. The digital display works perfectly and there are just two tiny rack marks on the top (see photos below)

Comes with original owner's manual and remote control.

Built by Sony at the time to be their ultimate no compromise statement CD/SACD player. By the time Sony released their XA777ES they had had numerous attempts at perfecting CD replay through some pretty amazing machines and built up a vast resource of knowledge and expertise in the field of digital replay. Sony used all of this knowhow to produce the SCD-XA77ES at a time when the company still wanted to be a high end hifi market leader.

Not surprisingly, the XA77ES's build quality is fabulous, far exceeding much of what is available today. The machine alone weighs 36 pounds (more than many decently powerful amplifiers). Everything is made out of metal. No cheap plastic parts, £10 CD ROM drives or tooth pick size capacitors here. The tray glides out in a way that Accuphase owners will recognize and the overall fit, finish, etc. is just exemplary. No wonder Accuphase, Lindemann and others used the XA777ES's transport in their flagship big bucks CD players for years.

I will also include a brand new Laser / drive for this - Will keep this player going for many years to come

I am asking a reasonable £700

This player originally belonged to a gentleman on AOS and I have used a lot of his description - link to original ad below

Must have been a good reason Rick

They are a thing of beauty ( build design and operation ) and I was seduced when I should have bought what I was after which was an older ES with wooden side cheeks

Which I now have ( CDP 557ES ) so this needs to go to a good home - with the spare laser it is a bit of a bargain I believe

Good that you have rescued it Julian 

It would be such a shame to see these great machines die for the want of one part

Its not that really 

Both are great players but I dont have any SACD's 

I should have really stuck to my guns and waited for a Black 557 to match my Black 707ES amp
