Antique pcdp finds!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Today I unexpectedly found that a little record store near my home stocks a few antique pcdps:

Aiwa XP6
Sony D265
Sony D147
Weston KD99

(ok, maybe not quite 'antique'... but definitely at least 2 generations old)

Which of these would be up to audiophile standards?

AIWA XP-6, I think.

Oh really? I would have thought the Sony D-265--here's to blindly following Sony

And has anyone heard of Weston?

I would potentially go for the 265...

in 1994 I got a 231, and that was middle of the road, so knowing Sonys numbering system, the 265 would have had to have been pretty top end in that years line-up?

But D-E550 up to D-E565 were the same player, just with different accessories...

I thought Sony's system is to use different first digits for the same period--larger the first digit the more high-end--and use different / more letters in front of the digits to signify different generations?
