Look for a used Modwright 999ES player. I have seen them in the $1200 range periodically on Audiogon.

OK, so the ModWright 999ES update is a contender. How about some of the other SACD players out there like models form Marantz, Lexicon, Denon, etc? From some of the info that I've read around the web, it appears that with SACD, the important thing is keeping the SACD data stream within the DSD world and not converting it to PCM. True, not true, maybe, maybe not....?
OK, so let's change the title and see if it changes things. Looking for more options and opinions on this than just a direct upgrade to my current player.
And while we're at it... I'm really tired of the "SACD is dead" comments; there's lots of them out there to be had and I've yet to hear one on a decent player that didn't trounce a RBCD. Maybe if we all start buying them, the manufacturers will give us more! :)
