My player (the one in the signature), was the entry ticket to Sony's ES series in 85
About the build quality I'll just say that these old players were made to last (mine has worked for 20 years without a hich), while new players, specally budget ones, weren't.
Also I've heard a lot of complaint on Nad's build quality, display and laser are prone to faliure after 2-3 years (this was the case with their older models, don't know about the 542).
Also, you can't even compare the quality of parts inside the Sony (wich was their flagship model at the time) and Nad (wich is middle class player).
P.S. I would like to state that I'm not Sony's fanboy, my answer is based on actual facts...
