FOR SALE: Sony EP9ES Digital Preamp
Sony EP9ES Digital Preamp in very good condition, highly regarded, this is a very good preamp for the money.
The Sony EP9ES is a preamplifier produced to manage only digital source material. Basically, what this means is that although this unit has a volume knob, it has no analogue inputs. It contains one coaxial input and four optical inputs. The menu is detailed and well thought out, although a little tricky to navigate. With all of that said, it is manageable and rewarding. It has several surround modes and effects. For my purposes I used only stereo with all tone controls bypassed.
This unit resembles other home components. It has the traditional style readout display and knobs. It is pleasing to look at, maintains a low profile, and visually fits in easily with other mainstream audio gear despite the "ES" at the end of its model number.
"I own a Anthem AVM20 and it is a fantastic sounding unit, maybe one of the best. The EP9ES was able to deliver audio at the same level. In very few cases was I able to tell the difference between the two. They were just that close. The audio is clear, warm, detailed, smooth, and transparent. After aquiring this little gem, I'm reluctant to give it up. Only because I have the Anthem AVM20 as my main unit, I am using the EP9ES as my computer preamplifier. I will emphasize; however, that if the AVM20 were to ever kick the bucket, I would have no reservation swapping this into its place. It is just that good."
