SACDmods.com was run by a guy named Matthew Anker who did amazing things to Sony CD players. And then he made the move to become a US Navy pilot in 2010.
This Sony SCD-C-555ES has gone through Matt's statement modifications at a cost of $662 in 8/23/04. Matt also sent it to United Audio for a new laser at a cost of $317. I will include both receipts to the new owner. Also included is the original Sony manual as well as the instruction sheet from SACDmods, regarding the work done by Matt. Also included is the Sony remote. Sorry, I don't have the original box, but I'll pack this to survive a Fedex vs. UPS BoxSoccer game.
Ask any and all questions.
I bought this from the person who had the mods done. I've used it for 5 years, but I just don't play many cds these days, and I have 4 other (lessor) cd players. This 555ES has never missed a beat during my ownership.
These players received great reviews when they first appeared. This one has been made even better. Google SACDmods.
Paypal users add 3.2% to the total cost. No international shipping, but domestic buyers with funds that come from international banks must add 5% to the total cost.
Raise your hand if you just adore the new Audiogon!!
For some reason, and I'm sure it has nothing to do with the new, vastly improved, feature-laden Audiogon, some buyers have had difficulty sending me messages through the new, vastly improved, feature-laden Audiogon system. One guy clicked buy it now, and after he never responded to my three emails, I called him on the phone. Imagine his surprise! Imagine mine! He wanted to buy the item, and I wanted to sell it to him, but low and behold, the new, vastly improved, feature-laden Audiogon prohibited our correspondence from reaching each other. Therefore, until the new, vastly improved, feature-laden Audiogon works properly, I'm including my telephone number with my listings: 203-313-9158. If I don't pick up the call, leave a message and I will call you back.
