Very enjoyable review

You made some good points in the opening paragraph that weigh on the mind of most audiophiles these days - why are the prices going up so fast?

I've had a modified Sony XA777ES for close to 5 years. Mine was done by Ric Schultz of EVS, who knows and respects Kyle's work.

Kyle has been known to be a bit too gung-ho in the past (like replacing all the capacitors on a Sony digital board with Black Gates). But I think his association with the folks at Audio Consulting is keeping him in check now. And the views of AC are obviously shared by Kyle. I do think the parts coming from Audio Consulting also have a lot to do with the sound you are getting.

I guess there's just one machine out there that you need to compare yours with - the APL NWO 2.5T.

Regards,
Geoff
