Indeed technology moves at a fast pace specially the digital processing section. However, reading on the internet and other forums the XA7ES´s transport and power section is still State of the Art by todays highest standards. I bought this unit new and moved on to SACD and had it gathering dust for years. I took the top off for a look inside and was amazed at how much copper it
has inside the case for RF isolation. Its close to 30lbs!
They dont make them like that anymore, thats for sure!
Its a beauty.
