I am looking for the following.  

DVP-S9000ES, TA-E80ES, TA-E77ES, CDP-X7ESD, and STR-GX10ES.  

I have a working GX9ES and parts unit with remote GX10ES I would trade towards a mint GX10ES.  Both have the Rosewood sides.  

I also have a EP9ES, NS3100ES, NC555ES, X202ES, and 508ESD that I would be willing to trade towards any one of the units above.   Thanks for any help you guys can offer!

No TA-N77ES on your list??

Nice list you got there. I would have loved to try a CDP-X7ESD, but managed to get a 1990 CDP-X77ES, which had the new HDLC converters. To date it was the best digital playback device I enjoyed the most. The TA-E80ES is a very nice preamp, I had 3 over the years, I also had 1 TA-E77ESD, which I sold as it was not in the best shape for my collection at the time.

A X77ES would be nice too, you mean the newer Pulse convertors right?  I have several of those players, the early ones have a bit more inner detail and are just overall better sounding to my ears.  

As I have documented on a number of threads I am completely happy with the BB PCM58 DAC chips used in the 508ESD/608ESD/X7ESD.   They have the sound I am looking for and will beat even reference players built today by a fair margin!

Not looking for the venerable TA-N77ES... or any other Sony amp really.  I think I am set in that area... I am very happy with my 330ES and 110ES as well as my myriad of different Sony receivers.

Scott,

I see the S9000ES DVD Player on Audiogon quite frequently. Good luck with your search.

The CDP-X77ES used the "1 bit" High Density Linear Converter, I beleive Pulse came later, but I could be wrong. It did sound nice and could never afford one when it came out in 1990 at a retail of $2400 CDN.

As for the Amp, I would seriously seek out a TA-N80ES. It's in a different league IMO from the amps you have now,especially if you have power hungry speakers. The N80 is not as expensive as the N77, but are essentially the same amp. I tried the TA-N55ES, TA-N330ES, TA-N220, TA-N77ES, TA-N80ES and various recievers, and so far, for sound, the nod goes to the TA-N80ES overall. Very smooth and effortless, and I actually did like the balanced ins that I used from my balanced out of the TA-E80ES. It provided a very quiet and powerfull sound.

I just got a S9000ES, so I can scratch this off my list.  


Revised wanted list TA-E80ES, TA-N80ES (based on your suggestion), TA-E77ES, CDP-X7ESD, and GX10ES (trade for both a working GX9ES, and parts/unit GX10ES)

A TA-N80ES and TA-E80ES set would look awsome!
