Vintage Sony Discman – D-515 (manufactured October 1992) VERY RARE flagship model. This is the very first Discman to feature ESP (electronic shock protection). It also had DSP (digital signal processing) with Bass Boost and DDS (digital dynamic sound) surround sound. Overall, very good condition. The player works well and sounds great through the line-out. Unfortunately, the headphone out is a bit temperamental, but it most likely just needs a new capacitor. I only used the line-out to use it with my headphone amp and sometimes with my powered Audioengine speakers. The top lid is in excellent condition with light marks in the shiny finish. The underside and interior of the unit suffers from a slightly “tacky” or sticky feeling. This is due to the fact that the rubberized finish has started to deteriorate. It’s my understanding that this is a common problem with all D-515s. This does not affect performance at all and really doesn’t affect the aesthetics much since both areas are not visible when in use. Please see pics of actual item.
