omg! i was just going to post my technics s-lp550! it is still surprisingly good. i don't remember how old the sony scd-1 is but perhaps that is the best cd player that many people could afford. this is like an old Toshiba Betamax. it means business. at least cd's are not quite obsolete yet.
oh, wait that is not completely true. many new dacs sound best in "nos" mode. in fact these old players many times do 16/44.1 better. however the mentioned technics really makes a nice transport today. comparable to what you would pay $2,000 new. it was like $600 in 1988. in fact dare i say it was not until like 5 years ago a crt display was still king.
