I was an early adapter with a Panasonic dvd-a player a couple of years ago and then with a Sony 222es SACD player. For my musical taste there is nothing that is exciting enough for me to go out and purchase. My last purchase was a Sam Cooke hybrid (thank GOD for hybrids !!).. I was so happy when I got my players and now they're just taking space in my rack. (check the hardware for sale section soon).
