Installed the SuperDupont mod. Helped with long term listening.
Great player for SACD and HDCD. Unfortunately it has major problems with the laser. Also, NAD has discontinued support for the player since it is about 9 years old. I found a guy in L.A. that finally fixed the problem. I recommend Henry Radio for this repair. I like players that can play these two formats, that is why I bought the Oppo.

Audio Research PH-6
Decided to give Audio Research a try when a seller on Audiogon decided to play me off another bidder. The guy was selling a Pass phono pre amp and asked $2,500. I said no problem. I figured that is what he is asking that must be his price. A week goes by and he wanted me to counter offer. I told him you should have asked for more in the first place. I went some place else. Don't play games.

I bought a Gyrodec on EBay and the last owner had his son ship it. Needless to say it arrived in broken pieces. I got most of my money back and I rebuilt it to a Gyro SE. The only original part is the metal frame.

These cables are custom made by Paul Laudati. Solid core silver. I highly recommend them. The price is the best deal on speaker cables. They sound great.
