Sounds great when it isn't broken-

  • Summary: This unit was the heart and sound of my front end components. I used the RCA outputs vs the balanced connectors to my pre amp. The sound was spectacular. At the time my entire home theater system was Sony ES.

FROM THE DAY YOUR PRODUCT IS INTRODUCED TO THE MARKET, REPAIR TIME MAXES OUT AT 7 YEARS, IF YOU ARE LUCKY!!!

  • Summary: I have truly enjoyed Sony high end and ES equipment for many years, and all is generally wonderful until you have to have it repaired, and I do not say that lightly. I have reviewed the new Sony 5400, and it is a beautiful component indeed, but I urge buyers to connsider one very important factor...

  • Summary: This Sony is truly a fine audiophile player. All the wonderful reviews I've seen about it were all true. I could not be happier with it and feel like it's a bargain for the price.

Product excellent - shipment service good

  • Summary: The seller organized shipment immediately after receiving the payment and the player arrived on time and safe to the destination. Sony ES SACD is a masterpiece and true bargain among the high end players which cost usually more than several thousand dollars.

  • Summary: I have been upgrading my sound system for the last 3 years and realized that I had everything staged to try out multchannel music. My pre-amps and amplifiers were Emotiva, speakers were Polk LSI's.

Buy this SACD/CD player

BlueFox, Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: Granted, disc players are becoming extinct, but still have a few years left. This player does a fantastic job on analog, two channel playback. I have not heard it through HDMI, but in that case I expect the other end to be the main sound factor. On two-channel, analog out this player shines.

Excellent piece of high end audio

Jack Daulton, Amazon
13 November 2011
  • Summary: Most of my CDs have been ripped and are played through a DAC. However, i have about 120 SACD's that can't be ripped (easily) and needed to update my 2003 Sony 9000ES and after reading several reviews of this piece of gear I purchased it.

User Review

Brian a AudioPhile, Audio Review

  • Summary: Briefly, this SACD XA5400ES is comparable to the best under $4k in terms of build quality and sound characteristics. The Red Book CD sounds better than expected from a SACD player and the SACD is full measure to compete with more expensive players.
