Up for sale is an Esoteric UX-1 Universal Disc Player in excellent
condition. This is the highly desirable top of the line version and originally
carried a retail price of $13,000. Rarely available, this model is considered
the sweet spot in the Esoteric lineup with the top of the line VRDS Transport System
and the ability to play CD/SACD/DVD-A and DVD Video. Just read the stellar
reviews (especially the Stereo Times article) on the UX-3 and you know the UX-1
is even better. I have owned both and the UX-1 is a superb sounding machine that
is a pleasure to own and operate.
This clean low hour unit was purchased with all factory
documentation, packaging, manual, remote, and double shipping boxes. It plays
beautifully and cosmetically rates a solid 8+. Local pick up is preferred
although shipping can be arranged at buyer’s expense. This is an unusual
opportunity to pick up a very nice unit at a fraction of new for $3200.
If you have an extensive disc collection and are looking to
get the best possible playback then look no further. This unit is considered
one of the best ever available for build quality, reliability, and performance.
It may likely be the best unit you have ever heard. OWN IT!
