I have one of these. Got it back in late 80's/early 90's. In New Zealand it cost NZ$2000.
Two things I do know about it.
1/ The drawer tends to stick after a while and it will not close properly and register that it has a CD. Can easily be cured by leaving the unit on - which should have the added benefit of improving sound quality as well. I suspect a micro switch might be the problem and I am aware (via internet) on another person who has had the same problem.
2/ It benefits HUGELY from good quality vibration isolation. I was already pretty happy with this CDP but after doing some reading on the Internet decided to try some Ganymede v.c.s. isolators. It was as if I had just done a component upgrade. I still plan on replacing it in about a year with something like a Meridian 588 or Naim CDX2 but I will now have to include the CDx711 in the audition process and not just assume a new one will be better.
: Does anyone know anything about this series of CDplayers? Looks like it matches the au-x701 series. but i cant find any amps with the "11" just " 01 " to match it, I came across this player at a friends house, She barley used it, so i made her and offer for a whole slough of equipment *IM* not using for it, and it sounds beautifull! Optical out, Coaxial out, XLR, Gold plated RCA out. I took off the cover, and there are two power supplies in the chassis. I assume one for circuits, and one for motor. Anyone know about this player? How much did it sell for orig? Reviews? Comparisions to which units? literature? :) Help! Thanks :)
