In Reply to: RE: Is it worth to get a Modded OPPO 93 or 95 for audio playback? posted by thebordas on March 11, 2012 at 17:35:51
I think modding is something of a slippery slope. I have no doubt that it can change the sound. But, usually, the evaluation is difficult because you cannot hear the modded and unmodded units side by side. Normally, you can only rely on a recollection of the unmodded sound or on others testimonials, most of those heard under similar conditions. I just do not think that acoustic memory is that reliable. There is much to much trust involved in the process for me to even consider it. I think it's much better wherever possible to do A-B comparisons in your own system.
Yeah, you have to really trust the Modders rep and believe:O) Modwright is first rate, thorough and reliable...they back up their work with a 5 yr warranty plus he has a good ear for music.
"Yeah, you have to really trust the Modders rep and believe:O)"
You do understand that the undesired angst of trust and belief in others is his point? Your position seems to be an unmitigated, 'you can trust me'.
To a certain extent, every purchase requires trust, no matter how well we have evaluated a potential new component. Until we live with it we don't really know it completely. I have used Modwright (based on trust) and they were top notch and delivered a better player in return for my money. How much better is always going to be subjective and up for debate. trust me:O))
"Until we live with it we don't really know it completely."
Since one is unable to reverse a mod, there is more of a likelihood of fooling one's self-gratification.
"How much better is always going to be subjective and up for debate. trust me:O))"
It's really inconsequential to someone whose stance is not to modify. There is absolutly no reason to trust you. We've come full circle.
Are you a robot? You certainly exchange ideas like one! I'm not trying to talk anybody into doing anything...I'm just mentioning my thoughts and experiences. Maybe you should re-format your hard drive:O)
I'm sure you mean well. "Trust me", strikes me as carny-speak.
"Maybe you should re-format your hard drive:O)"
I hope that doesn't become necessary.
So you are a robot! I knew it:O) The "Trust me" at the end of my last retort was meant to be a literary device to instill upon the reader a sense of irony and or amusement. FYI, I always mean well...but that doesn't make me infallible. It just makes me a guy with an opinion, like you Mr. Roboto.
"Trust me" seems to be your personna.
You speak binary and I speak english...I don't think we will ever understand each other completely. Sorry:O( Or should I say, bleep bleep boop boop bleep blippity bleep.
