Stupid Sony MBAs discontinue the XA-5400ES SACD player

No wonder Sony is losing money.  As they get further and further away from good sound, they get worse and worse at making money.   Akio Morita must be going crazy!

OK

I don't want to knock Sony as most of there products are a pretty fair value for the money. I owned the 5400 for about a year and found it OK, but like Sony's 7000 that I also owned, It just didn't get to the soul of music, I quickly became disenchanted.

I now use Ayre's latest C5 player as a transport with an Audio Research DAC8 with stunning results. The pair as left many of my die hard analog loving friends mouths agape, it's so funny.
