    I post this only because the Search function is down. Can anyone give an opinion on the Sony MOD-RF1 AC-3 Demodulator? Is it any better/worse than the Yamaha APD-1 or the Kenwood 9991D? It is pretty much impossible to get the (preferred) Pioneer RFD-1. I am not concerned with the available inputs/outputs, just the performance of the demodulator. Thanks!

    Sam, I have a Sony MOD-RF1, and I think the sound is great. Now, I haven't compared it to any other demodulators, as the Sony unit is the only one I've ever owned, but I still have no complaints with it. I bought my first LD player last year (Pioneer CLD-D406 brand new) and bought the MOD-RF1 since it was the only demodulator I could get brand new, and it was cheap. My interest in LD is only casual, so I had no interest in researching other demodulators on the used market. I know I don't have the information you are looking for, but if you can get a new MOD-RF1 from Sony for $120 as I did, I say go for it and don't look back.

    I don't think the demodulator makes a bit of difference (pun intended [​IMG]).
