RE: Is it worth to get a Modded OPPO 93 or 95 for audio playback?

Lots of questions!! - I have a (Modwright - non-tube) modded BDP-83 in the main system and right now I have a BDP-93 being used in the secondary basement system. I had the BDP-93 in the secondary bedroom system for a bit and when I first got it I had it in the main system for a couple of weeks. The BDP-93 without mods is not going to as good in my opinion as a good CD player. I've heard the BDP-95 and think for $1k it is going to be competitive with $1k CD players. I've not played FLAC/Wav files. I have a Squeezebox Touch in the main system with an upgraded power supply going into my DAC. I may have a different take than others. I previously owned an all-out modded Sony XA-777ES. I have about 300 SACDs and I might buy at this point a dozen or so a year. I use an HDMI audio-de-embedder (e.g. Monoprice product ID 5557) which is inexpensive (although I have an upgraded power supply for it) into the DAC and feel the SACD converted to 24/88.2kHz through the DAC sounds better. I know someone who does the same thing with a BDP-95. So in summary, I probably would not invest megabucks in a hi-rez disc spinner. I'd get a good DAC.
