New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Anyone modifying today's Blu-Ray/CD/SACD players?

I have a significantly modified Sony DVP 9000es DVD/SACD/CD player of superb sonic quality which is not working. I have a recent year Sony blu-ray player - a UBP-X1100es - for movies, but I am now using it for CDs and SACDs since the older 9000es Sony player is not working. The 1100es player's audio quality is decent, although not to the level of the older modified Sony player.

My question is: Is anyone modifying these more recent blu-ray/SACD/CD players?


Are people simply pairing them with outboard DACs?

As a side note, I had been pairing the 1100es player with Ric Shultz's Millenium 2 DAC, but it recently stopped working too, and while the Millenium 2 DAC is very transparent, it lacks deep bass which is disappointing for movie playback, although fine for audio.

Well, I thought that I would find out what other rpeople think...
