For sale is a beautifully maintained CDP-X777ES Sony ES CD Player. This is my second model. I purchased two in the early 90’s. Sold one a couple years ago to a friend. That was the player that I used the most. I kept this one for myself. It is lightly used as I had the other one. I have had many offers over the years from friends and acquaintances that wanted to purchase it because they have heard and know about this player. I have refused. Unfortunately I have been laid off so I need the cash, otherwise believe me when I say I would never part with it. It’s a real solid piece of hardware, very sturdy and made to last. How many CD players do you know of that weighs 40 pounds? Search on the web and you will find lots of people still using theirs to this day and refusing to part with it. Why? Most of the CD players built today do not have durability and the sound that this player has When the CDP-X777ES player was built, Sony wanted to extract every last bit of information off of the CD. This was when CD’s were king and competing Companies were trying to get into the high end market. Sony decided that they would build a player that was so good, it would extract every bit of the 16 bits on the CD. They also wanted to extract this data in such a way that it produced a very analogue sound, free of the criticisms of the older Philip and Sony models. I worked for Sony during the 90’s when Norio Ohga, the President of Sony at the time and who was credited with developing the compact disk. It was widely rumored within the Company that he was incensed that Sony received critical reviews of their older generation CD players as sounding harsh. He then ordered the engineering team to go “back to the drawing board” and thus the CDP-R1A and the CDP-X777ES was born. It's interesting to note that Sony’s One Bit implementation in the CDP-X777ES D/A converter was the forerunner to Sony’s now well reviewed DSD system. Check out the Vintage Knob when mentioning the 777 " One of the very few digital units I remember listening that shook my firm "analogue" slant" I believe that accounts for the wonderful Analogue sound that this player produces. And how does it sound? It draws the listener into the music in a way that none of the other players I have heard did. There’s not much more besides that that needs to be said right? I have Listened and owned a lot of CD players in my time. None of them could hold a candle next to the CDP-X777ES. I don’t want to sell it, I have to. Anyone who purchases this will have a reference piece of hardware that they will enjoy for many years to come. I should say this as well: there is not a scratch on it, not a ding, not a mark. It was kept in a stereo cabinet and only removed twice, once to exchange the cables for better ones. Once to take a picture. Two things to note however: The remote works but you will need to hot glue the battery compartment as it’s lose. Funny that one of the sellers in the URL below has exactly the same problem. Other than that the remote is fine. I might have another Sony remote that also works with it and will include it if I find it. (All the Sony remotes work with this model) Also I do not have a box for it so local pickup is preferred. (I never thought I would sell it!) I will ship it but that is at your risk. I have shipped a tube amp before with no issues. I will pack very well. If you look up these URL’s both of these units sold for over $ 900.00 so I believe my price is very fair.
