Dear Friends,

A Yamaha dealer is offering me Yamaha CD-S700 for 10500/- (it is ACD, MP3 player, also supports USB). Its actual cost is 19900/-.

Please suggest if it is worth at this price and about the performance, sound quality, durability etc.

Thanks,

Actually what I am told is that the dealers were selling the CD and Amp as a combo as the CD units were not selling on their own.

At 10,000 the S700 is a good buy. There is precious little available in this price range. The NAD 515, Marantz 5004 and Onkyo 7030 cost more.

There is an 125yr anniversary sale of Yamaha going on. The reduction in price might be because of that. Check out with the dealer. AFAIK A-s1000 and A-s2000 were part of sales. There is a whole lot of other equipment also on sale. One might say it a clearance sale rather than promotional one.

The CD 2000 and AS 2000 were often sold as a set for 1.5L. I believe that for 75k the amp was better value than the CD so I picked up 2 amps for 1.5L. At 75k there are other CD players that can compete with the CD 2000 but there are few Integrated amps with a decent phono stage available for 75K.

@prepress, were you able to visit the dealer and get details? I've been mulling over getting a not-so-costly CD Transport for use with my Rega DAC and at this price, the CD-S700 seems to fit the bill! I'd be grateful if you could update.

It is a long story. You see a friend of mine sent me an email about these Yamahas. I don't check email too often so after 2 weeks or so he called me wondering why I was passing up on these amps and CD players.

I told him I do not check my mail as often as he does and after a little deliberation told him can I get a pair of amps instead of an amp-cd set. One thing led to another and I got a pair of amps.

Tragically a few months after all of this happened my friend passed away. I will miss him. In fact barely 2 days before he passed away I had sent him a Shure cartridge I was no longer using for his turn table.
