I don't keep up with this stuff as well as I should--my available funds for upgrading don't really justify it. I bought a used Pioneer 563A over a year ago, waiting patiently for better universal players to drop in price. But the BM is really starting to bug me with this player. Should I go ahead buy a used ICBM? What is the current status of BM issues with DVD-A and SACD players? Are there any out there that get it right for about the same price as a used ICBM? A quick check on Ebay showed ICBMs going for around $300--though the auctions still have days to go. My system is very modest. I'm been running a 5-year-old Kenwood receiver (VR 6050), Paradigm Atoms for surround and Paradigm CC-100 for center. My mains sound ok, but they are old Audio Reference speakers that were given to me. Would it really make a difference to upgrade my player, or should I upgrade my speakers first? I know speakers make the most dramatic difference, but this will never solve BM issues. Advice?
