post #151 of 225

Hi guys,

 

I just happened to stumble upon this forsaken thread but still felt impelled to swagger my Sony ES piece of gear. Nothing extraordinary, the model has already been posted, Sony DVP - S9000ES but unless I overlooked it, didn't see the gold version of this model (that is absolutely stunning imo). 

 

So, herewith some pics from this rare? version,

Anyway, just my two cents

Wow, I can not believe how much better the unit looks in gold.  I have a working DVP-S9000ES in black.  To the best of my knowledge the only color sold here in the US was black.  Thanks for the post and the pictures.

Yeah, amazing products!  Here's another pic where you can really see the gold.

I like the S7700 in gold even more (matches my old STR-DA90ESG ...if I had a gold one... both of which had the motorized front panel)

I used to get the Sony Style magazine in the pre-Internet days, and I spent waaay too much time looking at all the crazy gold gear.  Ultimately, I think I prefer black, but those components with the wood sides were pretty awesome.

I love the gold 9000es.  Now I wish I had bought one.

Thought I'd show you guys this player before it dies.

Absolutely beautiful. If only Sony's products were as good today as they were in the 1990s... frown.gif

That is a nice looking player.  Enjoyed the video as usual. Thanks for taking the time to share

I will do a video in the SCD-1 next week. I think it will be nice to capture a moment in time before all those players stops working in the next ten or tweenty years.

I would love to post an image of my beloved XA 5 ES but the family I loaned it to love it even more than I did. . . .

Great thread!  I used to only buy Sony ES stuff, but I got fed up with their proprietary standards and got burned by Sony's first XBR SXRD television so I've since moved on.  But along the way I've owned (and still have, in boxes)

 

STR-DA50ES receiver (one of the first AVRs with DTS decoding)

STR-DA4ES receiver

MDS-JA333ES MD deck

MDS-JA20ES MD deck

TC-KA2ES cassette deck

CDP-CX333ES 300-CD megachanger

DVP-S9000ES DVD/SACD player (this is the only one I don't have any longer)

RCD-W222ES 5-disc CD recorder

 

I just got my DA50ES out of storage to try out as an amplifier with a pair of Hifiman HE-6 headphones I just ordered.  I'm curious to see how it does!

Is the 50es the only piece left?  Please let us know how it sounds with HE-6.  Some pics would be nice too.

Oh no, I still have all of my ES equipment except for the DVP-S9000ES.  However, except for the DA4ES, DA50ES, and JA333ES, all of it is packed up and stored in my basement (I use Onkyo in my dedicated theater room now).  My wife uses the DA4ES and JA333ES in her home gym.

 

I actually just unpacked the DA50ES two days ago to get it ready for when my HE-6s arrive.  I didn't remember how good its condition was...aside from some dust on the rear panel connectors, it's basically as-new.  I also forgot how badly its touch-screen remote sucked.

 

I need to get the RCD-W222ES back out too.  I remember it had a very small nick on the bottom edge of front panel, but I bought a brand-new front panel directly from Sony, so I just need to figure out how to get the old one off.

Just wondering if anyone listens directly through the headphone jack on the CDP or tuner? I typically use the headphone jack on my ES receiver as opposed to the jack on the CDP because I always assume the headphone amp in the receiver is more likely to be higher grade. I have a few Sony CDPs, but no ES models so I can't directly compare the headphone amp in a CDP vs receiver
