If you can find a better sounding and better built CD player out there for less than $400, then you should skip reading this listing and buy that player. But if you, just like us, can’t find it, then read on.
The X-339ES is a wonderfully executed CD player. Remember, this player was introduced in the Nineties, the golden age of CD playback. No parts were skimped and its design was one where it was geared towards challenging players that cost 2-3 times more. And by that, it delivered in loads. Good transport, proper isolation of sensitive sections like the power supply, DAC board, display circuitry etc in a pretty weighted chassis produced a detailed presentation of the music. It may not be comparable to the more expensive X-779ES ($1700 MSRP) which was launched together but at almost 60% cheaper, the X-339ES was the clear value winner.
