i also have a 9000es sacd player. i visited dan from modwright and we demo'd modified and unmodified versions of the 9000es player. the mods made a huge difference in redbook cd playback. IMO, the sony sacd players (scd-1, 777es, and the 9000es) are very good sacd players but are not that good at playing redbook cd's. If you are into sacd, any of the sacd players mentioned above are very good, (along with the marantz sacd players) but if you want a very good cd player, look at a good cd only player. I purchased a $2500 cd only player from Classe and i am very pleased with it. also, the 9000es is a very good dvd player.
