I believe it's the cover to this month's Stereophile, but I could have it confused with any other month.

Actually Irishdog, the SCD-1 has potted transformers, supposedly better damping materials and don't forget the fifth foot for support. The machines are very similar outside of that. That being said, I did hear a difference when I auditioned the 2 machines and neither one was very well broken in. Since i bought my SCD-1, it has blossomed into quite a wonderful machine on Redbook and SACD is leaps and bounds better. Gary.
Agreed, SCD-1 kicks ass. I have seen and heard tri-vista. Overpriced and overhyped, IMHO. Sounds decent, but then again so does a lot of stuff. Build quality, although 'flashier' than SCD-1, is not as good physically. I do not care for the overdone MF styling. For the price, buy 2 SCD-1s, mod one and sell whichever you like less, probably for the same $ as you paid. Or, wait for the XA9000ES in October (new Sony Flagship SACD player). Supposedly tri-vista is expected to "sell out" this summer/fall, which basically means MF will attempt to limit the supply in some bizzare effort to increase the value(?) or desirability of it? Um, hello MF... You are not Ferrari....
