Stereo times has just released a review of a modded SACD1000. They were favorably comparing it to a Meitner!


" ...Side by side the APL SACD 1000 gives up very little to the Meitner, especially as one ascends the food chain into hi-rez realms. Listening to DADs and SACDs is every bit as magical as when using the Meitner."

" The audio quality of the APL SACD1000 ranks right up there with the very best digital source components. "

The stock phillips Sacd 1000 is a excellant sounding player. I have one ,they do have reliability problems that can be fixed. I have read many good things about Alex's mod and was considering having my stock one modded by alex having heard how good the stock one sounds.
In the end I picked up the Meitner setup and am listening to it now with My Headamp KGSS /he90 setup. I am even considering sending my stock unit to alex and have it modded for a secound system as I am so impressed with the player.
