Sony SCD-1


Audio Aero Prima SE DAC


Siltech G5 Golden Ridge Digital Cable


I use the Sony SCD-1 for SACD playback and as a transport into the Audio Aero via the Siltech digital cable for redbook. In almost every case the redbook outshines the sacd(which is also very good). I keep both plugged into an Audio Magic Stealth mini digital power purifier, using Lat International AC2 power cords on everything.

Nope, I'm with you on this one all the way. The sony looks beautiful in person. I saw them at J&R refurb store collecting dust 6 months ago. The SCD1 has a tank-like presence, 1st class fit and finish, gorgeous material, etc.

Good, I can only spot 2 more in this pic. They're pretty hard to see though.

The pictures of them just dont do them justice. The beautiful blue/green sides set them off!

I saw one at Harvey's in New York when it first came out, when I had never heard of SACD. They were asking a pretty penny for it. If I remember correctly, the top loader has a little weight disc that goes on the CD, right? Built like a Hummer.

Tom H...I've been looking into buying a Siltech IC...how do you like yours?

Mr. Radar, Is that a tennis ball under the TT?

I only have the Golden ridge digital cable. It is VERY NICE. So smooth, and refined, while offering lots of detail and dynamics at the same time. I got to compare it to the Kimber D60, Creative cable green hornet, and Creative cable Silver bullet. It edged out the Silver bullit by a slight margin, but could live with either. They are very much alike. The bad part is the price. $650.00 for one used cable hurts.
Yes the SCD-1 uses a brass puck about as big around as a silver dollar and around 3/4 of an inch high. If I loose it I'm screwed.

The Shanling T200 uses a similar puck. Doesn't work well in front loaders, though.

Mr. Radar, you really ought to get your turntable off your receiver.
