Is there any reason to believe a VSE modded XA9000ES is likely to be superior to a VSE modded DVP-S9000ES? I use an unmodded DVP-S9000ES with video processing turned off as my CD/SACD player. I take digital out for CDs, and use the DACs in my Proceed PAV/PDSD pre/pro. I've wondered whether the XA would be noticeably superior. Of course, the DVP doesn't do analog surround.
I'm sorry but I confused the two Sony models. I friend of mine extensively modified his DVP9000. He claims that with mods to clock, power, and analog section, this piece gets reasonably close to his modded 777ES. One good thing about the DVP9000 is that used units can be acquired cheaply for sparing purposes.
