TechRadar's verdict

"Elegant, refined control system, very strong SACD performance and, in some ways, even more impressive as a CD player. In both cases, the sound is bold and well-defined, with high levels of detail resolution"
For
  • Better than the previous high-end Sony SACD, the XA9000ES
  • Incumbent in more ways than one
  • Nice price
Against
  • Not MP3 compliant
  • Only access to multichannel operation is via an external HDMI equipped multichannel D/A converter
