RE: The DB Testers are Making Me Crazy

No if you read the link I posted - the fellow was in the business of modifying (adding tubes) various pieces of gear - and he took it apart and found that Theta just put a whole machine inside their own.

Review publications raved about this player (and likely never looked inside) because they say stuff like - "based on a Philips LD machine"

Based on and having an entire machine put inside (the Philips case and all) is not "based on."

It would have been nice in the Theta's case for the reviewer to go out and buy the Philips machine and compare them sighted and blind given that Theta's contribution to this is about $5 and cheap sheet metal.

As Fikus noted - he felt that Theta's contribution if anything made the sound WORSE.
