I really need a quality source, suddenly, due to a change in situations. I have an excellent Bryston BDA-1 DAC available, and free access to a mint condition Sony DVP-9000ES DCD/CD/SACD player, that was used only a 3-4 hours a week, for a year before being stored. These very well made units (28 pounds, all copper chassis, etc.) were modded heavily, and expensively, by Modwright, and also Vacuum State Electronics some years ago, so I suspect the transport must be good.
I would appreciate your thoughts on whether this would result in high quality sound. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Alternatively, I could buy a transport for under $1k, but cannot find any good units which allow SACD playback, which is necessary. Thanks for any assistance.
