To anyone who cares, I eventually decided to sell the Mobile Fidelity because the slight difference from the modified Panasonic was not worth the extra dough. Not only that but after connecting the DVD player to my preamp using Goertz Alpha Core TQ interonnect, the difference was less than slight. In fact I prefered the sound of the modified Panasonic overall. There was an inexplicable transparency that was missing with the Mobil Fidelity and the Panasonic seemed to go lower in the bass. It all goes to show you the power of modifications with supreme quality parts is not to be underestimated. I will now order Blackgate capacitors to replace those in the power stage of the Panasonic. I expect this will bring the player up to the level of players costing $3000 and upwards.
