Default Sony SACD player

Hi all,
Take a look at this http://www.sonyindia.co.in/sonyindia...r=SCD-XA9000ES link. Would this be a good buy? And does anybody own this player?
Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Vivek

I had the ealier version the XA777ES. It is very high quality. SACD sound is unbelievable on it. For CD it is very good. It does tend to be analytical and accurate. At times I wanted it to have more depth and impact. I ended up selling it and getting a Marantz 8260 (which is great for CD but not as good at SACD). I still wonder if I made the right choice. If your system tends to be on the bright side I would go for it.

Hello Vivek, this player has been reviewed in several High End Magazines as the Best SACD Player for under $4000. It is the player that I would like to get, they can be had for about $2000 US on the Internet.

Regards

Anthony

Little bit off topic, but is there anyone who heard about Marantz Sa-8400? I want to buy one, but I did'nt find any test.
