Did you read Ric Schultz's take on mod'ing the Oppo? He thinks the NuForce mods are a waste

I have only heard a non-broken-in standard Oppo in my system via HDMI very briefly and was not wowed over the PS3, so I can't comment out of personal experience. But Ric of EVS is very much unimpressed with NuForce's approach, for what it's worth:

"The Nuforce SE edition does not make any sense at all unless you are a conservative type and cannot deal with us "modders" or do not believe in tweaking. The Nuforce "mod", because that is exactly what it is, may sound as good as my $150 mod to the SE....but I doubt it, since they are not doing many of the things that I do (I do mods to the main power supply board, the display board, the main board, transport mods and mods to the output board....Nuforce is only modding the output board.). If you get the Nuforce edition you probably do not want any other mods, because everything that Nuforce does I or any other modder would remove. They are just parts swapping, removing a few mutlichannel coupling caps, removing some muting circuits and redoing some filters. If anyone wants more info on exactly what Nuforce has done you can call me. However, we are naturally open to modding the Nuforce or any other "modded" version of the SE or standard. We could even do mods where we don't touch the Nuforce output board and just do all the other things we do. Most anything is possible for those that dream."
