What made the CDP-X779ES CD player so amazing is how accomplish a player it is. For $1,900 MSRP, it was and still is one of the best sounding CD player out there. It had unmatched resolution, clarity, imaging and bass and treble extensions. Listening to vocals from this player is just pure textbook, very well centered, nice depth and 3D imaging. Add a solid built quality, a fantastic transport and a under $2,000 price tag, it was a clear winner in the best value CD player category. The best thing about time is that you can now get this for way less than MSRP. At under $800 now, you would be hard pressed to find another player that will sound better than the SONY or offer more features that it does or is better built.
Overall condition of the CD player is good. Some scuff marks from use but nothing major. The rear corner of the left side has a piece of veneer peeled away at the corner which we would touch up with a color pen. We have the original remote and will securely pack this for safe shipping.
