I just did a few hours of listening via the XLR balanced outputs on this player and it wasn't too impressive. I was able to have single ended and balanced connections connected at once so I could A/B them by switching inputs on my amp. The balanced lacked detail and seemed rolled-off. The bass did not go nearly as deep and felt a little flabby. There was a collapse of the soundstage front to back. Definitely will stick with the single ended RCA outputs, they are...
The GS-X will come close to the Dynamight, if it's similar to the balanced dynalo (a, 'dynamid') as it appears to be. For the price limit you've set, the Dynamight is the way to go, I have a feeling based on the un-balanced comparison of the Dynahi / Dynalo, the Dynamight will be well worth the investment.
I was under the impression that the dark RS-1's were originally made that way from the start and it depended on the wood that they had at the time (darker pieces being used earlier?). Also, I've generally observed that wood FADES when exposed to direct light, so they should get lighter. Regardless, it will be a long process if you have them indoors, a majority of houses have UV coated windows these days. I may be wrong on both accounts though...

Thanks Rick... But wouldn't that give me 15.56 dB of attenuation? I was thinking of using values of R(in) = 47K ohms and R(g) = 27.5K ohms. Output would drop to 0.63V, and attenuation is 20 log (0.63/2) = 10 dB. But, is that better than using lower values like 47 ohms and 22 ohms, which would present the CD player with an effective load of 69 ohms. I mean, in terms of 'impedance matching' what I am I trying to match with what, if anything at all? Found...
Anyone know what the output impedance of the single-ended output is? I didn't see it in the specs...
Just trying to make some interconnects that will drop my CD player output by 6 or 10 dB, since the amp gain (on the integrated amp for speakers) is pretty high and my speakers are sensitive. So I figure I will just use a simple voltage divider: in which the interconnect will have a resistor R(in) in series with the hot/signal connection, and R(g) from the signal wire to the ground/shield. So, R(in) + R(g) is the resistance of the interconnect (without...
Yeah, I ordered some and will make a Gold Raincoat 'clone' to see for myself. May also try the cryo treatment with liquid nitrogen...
I didn't like the Cyber 20 either, and yet this glowing review from Positive Feedback: http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue11/cyber20.htm Anyway, I digress. I think the Bada would be interesting to hear and compare to the other hybrid designs like the Millet.
Get married, it will be curbed pretty quick.
