You betcha--this one.http://www.sa-cd.net/showtitle/3740http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000F7MJDE/?tag=sacdinfocom-20It's excellent overall.. 
Is the Oppo-105 with Modwright modifications
WOW would I NEVER listen to this dealer again. The '105 is one of the best-sounding SACD players money can buy and is maybe a quarter of the average price of the other SACD players that MIGHT be its equal. It uses the best DACs that money can buy....

Vandersteen 5Aa Carbon--any 5a owner's opinions?
Sonofjim, TY for restarting this.After almost 2 years, I love these 5As more than ever. I've improved one trio of bypass caps in the very complicated crossovers, replacing one pair of Dynamicaps with MultiCap TRXs pypassed with small SoniCap Plati...

SACD vs Regular CD's
.I LOVE SACDs and buy little else. Beside the fact that I love multichannel sound for large-scale Classical music, SACDs, including those mastered in analog, are significantly higher in transparency...clarity...than CDs. AND...the more transparent... 
"Sound is DARK / FORWARD / TRANSPARENT? Please help define above terms... And others like BASS IS TIGHT"These terms are fairly common and accepted.Dark--seriously...the opposite of bright, which means too much treble energy. So 'dark' is not enoug...
