I'm at a complete loss for words here. Totally speechless.

I think I need to stay out of this topic for the sake of my sanity.

Do you have Spongebob boxers by any chance?  Does an ostrich wearing K1000s sound familiar to you?

Um, no. I used to share an apartment with Kenny Powers and an emu that wore K-Swiss tubes.

I have a SCPH-5501. The power supply was recapped and calibrated, the transport was rebuilt and damped, RCAs were added, and nos ERO MKT capacitors were used along with metal film resistors in line between the DAC and RCAs as the output stage (it operates in parallel with the stock audio outs). I used the good bits (the transport and DAC) while side-stepping the junk. I recommend a new housing for your 1001 to move the power supply away from the transport and DAC. Spend the cash on good capacitors and resistors and you're in business. There is no shortage of documentation on the web for these mods. Be careful with adding a tube circuit. The 1001 doesn't respond well. The sound becomes too rolled off and it sounds like a Bose system! You can use an outboard power supply to correct the problem but at that spending point, just buy an Oppo BDP-95.

Those components look intact, and there is not nearly enough ERS cloth on display…

You deserve the praise. That's super cool. I'm going to copy the $hit out of that for my office! I hope you don't mind...

Latest edition to the listening area is one half of a pair of plantation chairs we found and had refinished.



The main problem now is staying awake while listening.
