Up for sale is a rare XA7ES, Sony's Class A flagship model of 1996, retailing for $3000. It has seen minimal use and is in perfect working order. I have essentially no time to sit and listen to music any more with a toddler so I have decided to downsize my equip. I have more photos and a short video of the tray opening and closing if you wish to see it let me know and I can send it to you.

On the listing I mentioned that I will ship anywhere but due to the weight (38 pounds), sensitivity, and value of this item it would probably be better for both parties to arrange some sort of exchange if possible and try to avoid shipping. I may even be willing to drive a couple hours if it helps but shipping still will remain an option and the asking price does not reflect any shipping costs.

Thanks for looking!

I've had extensive experience with this model...its a gold standard for transports. Sapphire bearings, built like a brick shithouse, etc. I opted for its little brother...the CDP-XA20ES only because I couldn't afford the big guy. IIRC, the CD is loaded upside down and it has a clamping weight, correct?

It has a clamping weight (I have a photo of it but just didn't add, I'll add that too...) but the CD is loaded label up.

Good morning

 

I am interested in this unit. I see this add was placed a while ago. Please advise if it is still available?

 

It will be much appreciated since I have been busy for months all over trying to source some of Sony's older generation ES players.

 

Kindest Regards

Rodney Malan
