Enjoyed the RCD-855 as well but its been awhile. I remember I changed out the RCA plugs for better quality ones. Internally soldered very pure copper wire from board to plugs. Also, I believe I either changed out the power cord or added an IEC chassis plug. Its been awhile or I'm getting older. These things made the sound slightly better. After I sold the 855, bought the Rotel RCD-971 HD CDP. No comparison. The 971 is SO much better. If you take off the cover you'll see what I mean. Honestly, if the 971 comes for sale @ a reasonable price (I paid around $250), consider purchasing. hope this helps, Bill.
