Sony CDP XE370
Disadvantages: Hardly anything that is loud
Sony CDP-XE370 to my mind is a completer CD player. The aesthetics is almost perfect, excellent audio quality. In fact if you keep in mind the price factor it can very well compete with a Marantz or a Denon. The mechanism is faultless, noiseless a very smooth. The only thing that has left me grumbling is the non-inclusion of a head phone jack and a remote; I have to rely on the amplifier.
It sports a very solid look and in fact it is much solid.
SOME GOOD FEATURES:
It's true that this CD player is not stuffed with lots of feature but the one that are there, are excellent:
1. Variable audio output.
2. CD-R/RW playback capability.
3. Jog Dial control for track search.
4. 20-Track Music Calendar.
6.Optical digital output.
7.Hybrid Pulse D/A Converter.
8.8x oversampling digital filter.
9.Digital Servo Control.
10.3 Play modes, 2 Repeat modes.
Now considering some features which are looked for or associated with a CD player, are mostly there in Sony CDP-XE370, but what would have been excellent additions are CD text and a wider variety if outputs. This player offers only optical digital output and limited extras like Fared, Auto space or Music scan. But these are mainly used for recording to a Mini disc.
The introduction of new H-Pulse DAC replacing the Current Pulse DAC is welcome and enhances its performance. It includes the Peak Search program which seacherches repeatedly and get a level match for recording.
Its audio performance is excellent and performs uniformly through the audio spectrum. The best part is its superb performance at a low volume. The sound is soothing with excellent low and high frequency response.
Considering the price it is an excellent but.
