re: SL-PS770D

I recently picked up an SL-PS770D second had, and in excellent almost new condition, I have various different cd players, all collected over the last few years, having built up a very revealing system, I can easily hear differences between most cd players, while listening to a few of my own reference albums, a few of my cd players do sound quite similar, some of them stand out as far clearer, dynamic, fast paced, punchy, with a lot more detail, and generally sound far more realistic with acoustic instruments and vocals, and thus sound over all better than the average cdp, the SL-PS770D certainly is one of those players.

It has a capacity to let you hear detail that you have possibly never heard in your well known albums, for example, I have listened to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon for years in cd as a reference, like a lot of other people have, and there where a few places where I could clearly hear talking in quiet areas that I'd never before heard, as well as the usual background talking that also seemed to stand out far more than usual, having listened to this album on many many expensive and supposedly detailed systems, this came as quite a surprise, I would recommend picking one of these cd players up as they sell for very good prices, well worth trying in your system, you may be very surprised by how good they sound, even in comparison to more recent players, and at far higher prices.

The SL-PS770D might not have a inch thick alu front panel, and weigh 100lbs, don't let that put you off, these are well worth trying out, I'm thinking these should be classed as hidden gems, easily overlooked as they don't seem to have all the usual trimmings that the more expensive machines have, you know, three power transformers with huge power supply caps etc, this just shows me that you don't necessarily need these things to build a very good cd player.
