Let us know what you think soon. In term of build quality, it isn't no match to the build quality of the SCD-777ES and SCD-1, but what is? The sound is definitely nicer in my book.
Pulled the trigger on this. I would have gotten it sooner if UPS was opened for pick-ups on Saturdays. Oh well, I have it now. First impressions are the unit is not as heavy as I had imagined. The disc tray feels cheap, not metal. I guess I was comparing it to my Sony SCD-1 & SCD777es in terms of build quality. The connections on the back looks like quality jacks. No SACD sampler in the box. :( Unit tracks CDs & SACDs much faster than my other players. Both unbalanced and balanced XLR are Live which I like. I'm gonna give it some time to break-in before I make any conclusions on its sound quality. Until then, some pics.
