The latest issue of The Absolute Sound said the new 777 is good but the complete review won't be out until next time. I would also like to know the same things.

About two months ago, at the Audio Video Improvements forum at www.avsforum.com, I reviewed the new Granite Audio 657 tube cd player. On redbook CD it by a small margin outperformed a Bybeeized Sony SCD-777ES playing the same SACD version, in my system, and in another system I listened in, too. I was surprised. And I immediately sold the SACD player. Redbook ain't dead yet, not until the SACD players have better analog output stages. I recently upgraded my Theta Casablanca 2 DACs to Xtreme and after some weeks of burn-in, I find that now my using the Casablanca Xtreme DACs is comparable to the Granite tube cd analog output sound quality.
