Thanks for your input; could you expound on your comment that you liked the Rega Planet better than the Njoe Tjoeb. What appealed to you, the soundstage, detail, tube-like sound? It would help me to determine whether or not to pursue one.
I'm currently using the Ah! 4000; it's a very nice player.I went with the upsampler - a worthwhile upgrade. Funny, just the other day I found out something that does effect the music; if you hold down the "edit" button on the unit, the variable volume is turned off. This bypasses the volume circuitry of the 4000, yielding, in my ears, a much more natural, full sound. Since, I'm using a preamp, I had unnecessarily limited the sound by having the volume control engaged! I was glad to find the edit button hint online.
But one always wonders if another brand modded would be preferable. Basically, I wonder if changing op amps etc. can make a player sound superior to putting tubes in it.
Anyone else who's heard these modded units, I'd appreciate your comments.
And now I see that there's level one and two mods available for the Ah! 4000 as well. So, would the modded 4000 be superior to the modded Music Hall cd 25? Anyone heard the modded units to compare?
