So I have a Qualia 017 Mini Disc Player in Polished Chrome - Complete and LIKE NEW! See Photos!

Comes with:

Main unit




Neckchain to the remote

Battery charging stand

Carrying case (leather)

AC power adaptor

Cleaning cloth

Owner's Guide

Complete with original packaging and boxes.

I bought this at the New York Sony Style store quite a long time ago. They were made to order and it took two months for it to arrive. I've barely used it and it was more on display in my collection than carried around (which it never was) I just tried it out and it still works beautifully and the sound is incomparable.

I'm thinking about selling it... I know they're rare and that very few were bought or made and possibly worth thousands???

I'm accepting serious offers... it really is a beautiful piece of engineering.

I really have know idea how much this player is worth, someone at Sony once said $5,000, but that was a long time ago. I've never seen one for sale on eBay and trust me I've looked. I've attached some pictures too... enjoy! Now seems like the right time. Thought about eBay, but I'd like to see what this forum has to say about it.

Any offers or more information about how many were made and how much it's worth? Is it now just a working object d'art?

Good to know. Yeah if it isn't worth what I think it is, I'd be more inclined to keep it. It really is quite beautiful. I'm pretty sure I paid $1900 + tax when I bought it - had money to burn back in the day. I remember the salesman was all about the earphones.

Read the OP more attentively & you might find answers to to those questions.

No harm in making sure.

In a sale what usually happens is that a prospective buyer might ask to confirm certain details with the seller. This is especially so when the price is very high.

I don't have the actual receipt (actually I might, just haven't looked for it), but I do have the user manual. I have everything that it originally came with - It's basically new out of the box. The pics don't do it justice, but funny enough I lent a friend my real camera to sell their vintage Marantz stereo.

I really don't want to sell it, but need to fund some projects so I thought why not now.

Anyway, thanks for looking!
