New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: It shouldn't really matter to you Mudman...

Apparently, you have not read the entire thread so let me summarize it for you.

The original poster, who is a high-end audio manufacturer, made unfavorable comments about a stock Esoteric DV-60, a player I currently own and with which I am very familiar, as compared to a stock Sony SCD-1 (a player I used to own). I tried to be constructive by pointing out that the comparatively-less-than-stellar sonics he claimed to have heard from the DV-60 might have been the result of a lack of break-in hours on the player. The original poster then acknowledged (grudgingly, IMO) that the DV-60 in question was brand new, and that even after the comparison it had less than four hours on it on SACD and zero hours on CD.

Now that you know that a high-end audio manufacturer conducted and then, in his second AA post ever, reported on what I think just about everyone here would consider to be a fatally flawed comparison between two SACD players (one fully broken in, and one not at all), what do you have to say?

It is okay by me if you do not get fired up about such things, but if that is the case then why would you bother chastising someone who tries to correct the record?
