Zeplin,

Thanks for the confirmation of the Technics SL-XP300. It sounds similar to my Sony D-321 but smoother and sweeter. I wonder how it would stack up to say a D-311 or D-777? Do you have any idea if the Sony IR Remote Sensor would work with the Technics?

also, it is good that you know your pcdp, because the current pcdp's they make today are ****ty in the way of sound quality...ever brand focuses on battery life over sound quality, and that's just too bad. i understand why they don't concentrate on sound quality anymore, and what type of people they are appealing to, but it's just too bad that us audioholics have to suffer the consequences! oh well, i guess that's why we buy the vintage pcdp's. although i would say that iRiver does make the currernt best pcdp out of any of the current pcdp that i've tried...in terms of options, sound quality, and usability all combined together and taken into consideration as one! good luck to you and happy listening


edit: I know for a fact that i didn't write ****ty in my original post because i never swear unless i'm mad and in the TIO forum??? this is wierd, unless someone changed it??? did any of you mods change it or anything??? i'm pretty sure i wrote crappy??? this is wierd

Yeah, and to think I made a private offer of 75 dollars on that D-555 that the seller almost took, LOL....also, the last D-211 on Ebay won by cscott343 last night went for 153.00, not too bad a price...

Congrats PeterR, I see you got that D-311 for 118.00, and 50th State won the last d-303 on Ebay for 162.49. Are prices coming down on these vintage players?

One of our own just won a DCP-100 for $57 or so today. Then again, it was very poorly advertised (without a model number).

The most recent price for a DCP-100

And yes I do think the prices have stabilised some what. Plus the fact that bid wars are a thing of the past now.

It would be very interesting to know what Head-Fi members have paid or opinions as to what the prices should be.

Thanks,

The info is coming in well. We should be able to make an averege price (or hi-lo) for many of these classics. Recently one of our members got a Denon DPC-100 and I was able to get a DPC-7D Also sold on eBay recently were a Sony D-35/350, D-202, D-303 and Technics SL-XP300 (18 bit classic) If you've seen others please post what they went for. These players seem to be showing up on eBay Germany with greater frequecy but are generally not available to those living outside of Germany.

PS- Does anyone know what the current price for the Panasonic SLCT-470 would be?

Pappucho, I just won that D-303 on ebay germany that you tried to bid on before. I got it for 86 Euro. It is being shipped to a friend in Germany.

Amadeus, I have seen your name on the bidder list of most of the classic PCDP's!

Not at these insane levels...

Although, it looks like some of us did try.

Abandon hope, all ye who biddeth against 50th-state. That guy is as crazy as any of us, but with the funds to pull it off, haven't ever seen him loose...
