Other Notes: "The Sony SCD-XA777ES was Sony's $3,000 flagship 36-pound (16 kg) single CD and SACD player of 2001-2004. Sony fielded this player mostly as a "halo" product and to promote the SACD format. It plays both CDs and SACDs.
As the "777" model number tells us, Sony planned for this to be their greatest player ever.
It has both RCA coaxial and TOSLINK optical digital outputs (for CD only), and has both stereo analog as well as a dedicated six-channel analog output for 5.1 multichannel SACDs.
Better than modern players with only HDMI multichannel outputs for ratty A/V receivers, this Sony beauty has six discrete analog outputs from six premium DACs to feed to six channels of premium amplification. (one of these six is the "0.1" mono subwoofer output.)
Since it has six ultra-high-quality DACs for the six channel outputs, in stereo mode, it sums three DACs together for each stereo channel, lowering DAC noise and random distortion and artifacts by 10 dB compared to the performance of just one of them — and each one is as good as Sony knew how to do.
This player measures and sounds wonderful." -Ken Rockwell
