They are on top of my HT right now rather than in it, since the units are deeper than the cabinets. They are the pride and joy of my system. Although obsolete, these recorders and a digital edit controller, which cost me over $17,000 back in 1995, are still used occasionally today for some recording chores. [addsig]

What does a pick-up unit for the DVP-S9000ES cost. If it is difficult to install perhaps I can take it to a local electronics repair shop which has impressed me having repaired some of my Sony ES stuff. What is the warm and cold about, is that suggesting it's a laser problem rather than transistor in need of replacement?
Further investigation reveals all of my hybrid SACD's will play the SACD stereo layer, with one exception. Also, some of my recently purchased hybrid discs will only play the stereo SACD layer from a condition when the DVP-S9000ES has not been warmed up. For example, after playing a disc's stereo SACD layer and then inserting another disc, the player will read CD. Does this help anyone to help me to understand the needed repair?
I recently purchased "Brothers In Arms" a multi channel SACD having stereo SACD, as well as CD layers. Only the CD layer of this SACD will play. This prompted me to get out all of my multi channel SACD's and play them. I discovered that all multi channel and stereo SACD's with a CD layer will only play as CD's. Multi channel SACD's with stereo SACD but without a CD layer play stereo SACD just fine. What's broken here? BTW, my remote, which has a SACD/CD button will not function.[addsig]

A recent visit to ebay suggests demand for Sony ES is increasing. Not surprising, I was in Best Buy's the other day and tried out some of today's plastic clad surround sound components. They failed to inspire or fire my imagination. [addsig]
Sorry, I can't help, I have not had the problem you have alluded to. I do hope you can get it fixed. There is a Sony professional repair center located in Los Angeles, CA USA which I have sent one of my units to for repair. For a flat rate of $890.00 they fixed everything, bringing the unit up to specs. Perhaps there's an equivalent outlet in your area. At any rate, I hope you can get your unit running again. I completely understand your frustration to have one of the most magnificent recording devices on the planet and not be able to enjoy it. If I can think of anything t ..
Well, it does appear the 5400 is indeed again available, even direct from Sony. Now I need to make a decision, buy the Sony or buy an OPPO 105. Although the Sony plays multichannel SACD's, the reason I want this sort of SACD player in the first place, with my current system, it appears I cannot access multichannel from the Sony since it does not have multichannel analog output, just stereo. On the other hand the OPPO has multichannel analog outputs. Seems like the only way to get multichannel SACD from the Sony would be to buy some sort of HDMI to analog converter, if such a thing ev ..
I wish I could help you; but, it appears I can't. I hope you succeed. The PCM-7010 is simply awesome. In close to 30 years of recording professionally to produce radio commercials I have not experienced any post production unit which has been as satisfying as the 7010. From life like sound to functions, it is really outstanding in its class.

To me this is curiosity reasons only since I´m surely understand that the analogue cassette technology as well as the DAT and MD technology havn´t the best future possibilities... but for me they have some big marks in the Sony heritage so they really must be a part of a serious ES collection!

Well, no statement about refurbished; and, there are about a dozen on line retailers who are now showing the product, which was not the case a few months ago. All show at $1499.99. The Sony site says, to buy, go to custom installer in geographic area.
HDMI for video goes from Panasonic BD-80 to my television, a 37 inch Panasonic LCD. 5.1 analog audio from BD-80 goes to TA-P9000ES, while digital audio output from BD-80 goes to TA-E9000ES. Switching from TA-P to TA-E has not yet revealed which unit sounds better. I have a JBL B380 sub powered by a Sony TA-N80ES operating in mono which works with either the TA-P or the TA-P. I can't for the life of me remember how I hooked it all up but do remember I followed the connection diagram that came with the TA-P9000ES. I mention the bass aspect since with either t ..
