The CDP-XA1ES is like well aged whiskey. Great in its day and a still worthy contender for under $80 now. SONY’s ES series may have gone through many iterations over the years and prices have climbed steadily but if you trace back to its “origins” like the XA1ES you see here, you would then appreciate how this was the “Book of Genesis” CD player in its ES series.
Cosmetically, there are some minor scuff marks/ light scratches here and there but all age appropriate. A SONY remote (may not be the original model# that is associated with it) is included and works fine with the unit. Unit will be securely packed for safe shipping.
