What do you think about this cd player

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Im currently trying to hear back from NYsound whether or not the player can be modified to 120v

http://www.ornec.com/product/US/100059

I just committed to a ppx slam and thought I need a source upgrade,

arrrghh.. I maxed out my credit card, so if I get this one, Id have to charge it to another card. I dont know if I can bear the burden this hobby. or whether or not its worth the upgrade and burden of finanical cost

anyhow anyone every deal with NYsound?how are they?

Why don't you hold off on a source purchase until you can get the one you really want? With the purchase of the PPX Slam, it seems you are in this for the long haul. Just continue to use your current source until you can really afford the source you want. No need to upgrade everything all at once just because you are getting a great amp.

If I were you, I'd save my money for the EastSound E5. I know it's more expensive than the Onix, but every owner raves of the E5 comparing it to the Wadias and Meridians. Besides, Onix is releasing a new cd player to replace the XCD-88 soon, at least that's what I've heard.

because I want to change both the source and amp at the same time.

anyhow, I just got the xcd88. I figured av123 had a lenient return policy if I dont like it I can return it or I could just modify the cd player later on if I want a better sound.

where did you hear about the new version?

Well, the Onix XCD-88 is a rebadged Shanling CD-S100/Music Hall MMF-CD25. Those players have gone though an updated MKII version with the improved Burr-Brown 1738 24/192khz DAC. I figured the Onix would follow suit.

I also saw the announcement for the XCD-99. But that looks like a completely new cd player, so maybe that is the XCD-88 replacement, instead of a revamped XCD-88.

I know you want to change both at the same time. What I was suggesting is you don't have to. You'll still be able to enjoy the PPX Slam with a lesser source. But yeah, if you are comfortable with the return policy, who knows, maybe you will be happy with the Onix.

I was not aware that nysound was ornec.Ornec is a british owned company that that operates in china also.

Original products are some of the best products that china has to offer under a Chinese name.I had read in many forums that the player you were going to purchase was extremely good.The model above this is the Original Davinci 9.8 that i was considering purchasing.I was told by ornec that none of the original line is 110V.You would need a step transformer to run one of these players.

I still in the future may purchase the Original Davinci 9.8.A nice step transformer can be had for 30$.

You would not have gone wrong with the orginal.I would have Chosen the orginal any day over what you have chosen.

Even though you would need a step transformer the orginal line is built with quality.So i read in many foreign forums--from what i could read

You spent $100 for a black face plate?

I kind of regret telling you about the XCD-99 now. I thought you were near maxed on your cc?
