Older High End Esoteric CD Player

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My father in law has been giving me some of his old equipment over the years, and over Christmas he gave me his old CD player. It's an Esoteric (Teac) CD-Z500. I have it set up to a B&K Pro10-MC Pre-Amp w/ a B&K Sonata EX-442 2 Channel Amp. It was manufactured in 1990, but the sound is incredible, considering it's replacing a $150 Sony 5 Disc I bought at Best Buy a decade ago. I have found very little about it on the web and hope that someone can fill me in on what they know about it.

I purchased an Esoteric CD-Z5000 new in the early 90's. It's in storage now, but I remember how great it sounded with my Snell EIII speakers. It had dual TDA1541A DA chips which are still sought after by those in the vintage audio community. I remember having an issue with my player. Every now and then it would not recognize any tracks on the CD. I would keep opening and closing the tray until it did. I still don't know why it did that.
