I'm looking for a good dvd-a/sacd player in the sub-$1000 range, preferably somewhere in the neighborhood of $500. Quality dvd playback is not a necessity, nor is dvd playback required, in fact.
There aren't any players that have a better audio section at the expense of video?Some of us who put audio at a premium have opted to get their player modified ("modded") to weigh the scales toward the audio end. I am currently awaiting the return of my player with such mods.
Doug, which player are you getting modded; is it a universal player? What are you having done and who is doing it?Pioneer 47Ai - Universal Truth Mods by Dan Wright. One can save money on this front by getting one of the other mods offered, and get it for a less expensive player, such as the 45A. There are other mods for universal players, such as these Pioneers and the Denon 2900, that others provide and are a bit more expensive, likely outside the original poster's budget.
