New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Well sure, but...and...

I'm not an expert. I only know that Ric Schulz has designed a cover that is raised, and allows better ventilation - for the 95s without tubes. I have not heard of anyone who has designed a cover for the Modwright and Exemplar tube players. I imagine it could be done (although I would think it might be potentially more clumsy). It also may need to be raised more, given that tubes generate heat.

I am always amazed when people say something like
"...the only time I hear it is when there's absolutely no signal playing."

I am not being critical of you. The reason I say I am amazed is because even though one does not "hear" it per se, the noise is still there, and raising the noise floor. IMHO, a low noise floor is a *huge* benefit when listening to music. It's easy to experiment and test the benefits and problems by adding some noise to the environment (e.g., with a room fan); and then subtracting it. Of course, if one already has a somewhat high noise floor (traffic, refrigerator,kids, component noise), it is less easy to notice the effects of relatively small additional noise.
