Being on the opposite end of Ebay's rulings against me I thought I would give him the benefit of the doubt.

After auditioning both the S7000 and S7700 I can give them both my seal of approval for use as serious CD players.  As a transport they are extraordinary, as stand-alone players they are both in the same league as the S9000ES.   HIGHLY recommended.

I remember back in 1990 when I got my brand new CDP-X55ES, one of the feature was 45 bit internal processing. I used to have a white paper on what that was exactly, but sadly it's now lost...I think it was not related to the DA converter, but some other side chain processing. Maybe someone remembers for sure?

Shhh, don't let the secret out! These are fantastic as CD players, in fact Sony labled the machine as a CD/DVD player! I had a DVP-S7700

I won't tell everyone about how good the S7000/S7700ES/S9000ES are . There is really no need to ever spend more money on a player.
I just recently missed out on a 608ESD. The 508ESD/608ESD/X7ESD are still a cut above of anything I have yet used to date at a stand-alone player and I beg anyone to prove me wrong . Despite the exceptional build quality of the 707ESD, I still think the 508ESD sounds better. And yes the 508ESD is better than any other player with the BB PCM58 DAC. I have tried several others. All in stock form. Not even my modded NC555ES has this level of performance.

I am in love with your "glamour shots" of your Sony ES gear. I have a nearly new Sony DB930 receiver that I wish I could do similar justice to. The remote is still in its package and unused. It still has the warranty stickers on all the screws on the case! Really super rare to find one in this condition.

Any ideas what this mysterious jack is used for on my Sony CDP-C85ES?

If you are talking about the RF connector to the right of the LINE OUT jacks, perhaps its used for some kind of calibration either as an input or an output.  You will need the service manual to determine for sure.

Control S I think used to be for a cassette or some kind of tape to start the record at the same time as play.

I have owned several of these changers and none of them had this... could it be possible that someone retrofitted a coaxial digital output?

I agree with Scott's thought.  Sony never used that type of RCA connector in this component grade.  Patching a coaxial output in parallel to the optical output does not require very many parts.
