Re: Marantz SA-11w/ Reference Audio Mods Modifications

i guess that there are different strokes for different folks. there was a time that i was interested in buying and selling equipment, maintain its value was paramount. but acheiving the best sound reproduction possible has become more important.

i have had all of my equipment extensively moddified ... why? because all equipment is built to a pricie point. to make a player that costs 200 - 300 bucks means that something has to give. yes a cap is a cap a value is a value but is it really? i have heard the differences between the superclock 3 and the superclock 4. in my system the difference was not subtle. i have heard the difference that a radical mod on my aleph 3 made. HUGHE!!!! i have learned that i must be willing to risk something to gain something. in audio i am willing to take those risks. i know that i can always return to the previous state.
