Culling the equipment pile ...

For $50 plus shipping (USA addresses only), a very lightly used Sony DVP-NS500P SACD/DVD/CD player. 
This unit has 5.1 analog outs, stereo analog outs (2 pairs) and coax digital out. It has composite 
video, S-video and component video outs. Remote and manual included. This was an early-era SACD 
player, so it sometimes can't find the SACD layer on hybrid discs. It plays non-hybrid SACD's 
perfectly. Also be aware that it can't read DVDR media and has trouble with some CDR media. Reads 
commercial CD's and DVD's just fine. Decodes Dolby Digital and DTS digital from DVD's. In its day, 
the SACD playback quality was well-reviewed as were the DVD playback qualities for both video and 
audio. CD playback sounds fine to me, but there's that SPDIF out so you can put it thru the DAC of 
your choice.

Please ping off-list if interested. A cheap way to get a nice DVD player and step into the world of 
SACD.
