You would've done better to obtain a 779 or XA7. It can probably be modded to accept a IEC cord. Check with Northern Sound Company for ideas.

I own a CDP-X707ES from 1996 (the unit before the new X7ES). I understand that Levinson used to do some fancy mods on the "7" series players. But the cost was about $1k and I was not sure if it was worth the money. The X77ES was a great player and if it is not exhibiting problems, probably stacks up to most plyers made today!
Back in 90 my brother had a all top end es system prof installed and the cd player was the x77es and it sounded great as i remember. Try using a Monarchy DIP between the x77es and Dac, this should smooth it out alittle. It may be a little forward on its own but still a great Cd player even in todays standard. Some Cardas Golden Cross ic's might also tame it alittle. HNY-- Mike
Thanks for all the advice. I was thinking of buying a dip unit from monarcy. I'm not sure what dac to use with it though. I'd be happy with something used and inexpensive also, are there certain interconnects that make a difference? I use FMS at 250.00 a meter pair. I think its a great cable and is all copper. Has any one tried silver on this player? thanks guys for responding!
