ASR ... I have an Accuphase DP-77 SACD player, and it is the best piece of audio gear I've ever owned. Its merits reveal themselves over days, weeks, and months of ownership and operation. The precision of the cd drawer opening and closing, the rock solid feedback of the controls, and the amazing sound ... an almost indescribable combination of detail and smoothness never heard from other digital gear.
I also have an Accuphase A-20 Class A power amp ... an amazing power source for K1000s or speakers.
So ... I completely understand your desire to move up to the DP-700, but for me ... I must resist ... must resist ....
ps: we should have discussed our Accuphase love at MOA .... oh well, another chance at CanJam '08 in May, right?
