Sony CDP-X707ES CD Player with Swoboda modification – Quick Impression
I can’t remember which version of Swoboda it was (the photo is not of the unit I had), but I think it was the best available at the time, so it might have been the 2 or 2+.
Even more accurate and dynamically expressive than even the XA50ES with LC Clock, the X707 Swoboda is incredibly impressive at first hearing. But these improvements are very technical in nature, making the player ultimately also a bit too clinical and analytical. If you like a smooth ride, then the X707 Swoboda is not for you.
