For under $2,000, I don’t think you can find a better built and better sounding player than this SONY SCD-1. Especially when a BRAND NEW laser assembly was just installed on it (we paid $800 for it). Every SCD-1 and SCD-777ES will need a laser replacement eventually because it will stop reading SACDs as SACDs and will only read its CD layer. At its original $5,000 MSRP, it boasts a built quality that was second to none. There may be some competition for sound quality at that price point but if you want a clinically accurate reproduction of your CDs, than the SCD-1 has very few rivals.
As you can see from the pictures, the unit is in pretty good condition. There are just two spots on the left top corners (one spot is at the “Time” button and the other is at the back rear corner) where there are some fine surface scratches from a shipping issue. Some sanding with very fine grit sandpaper should remove most of it. We do not have the original remote but will include one that will work with it. CD puck is included. Unit is pretty heavy so shipping will not be cheap. Item will be securely packed for safe shipping.
