Any feedback on how good the Marantz SA-11 is?
Sorry for my apparent lack of awareness that this has been debated on this forum. Could you point me to that discussion? The current TAS issue raised some thoughts about the sound. In my discussions with a friend who owns one he says the sound is ... 
Esoteric DV-50: Any cdp's Significantly better?
Here here Alex! I was wondering when you were going to make that declaration. As I stated before, I am not that fond of investing part of my money into a Denon player. Don't get me wrong but my point is I would rather have your player and not Deno... 
Esoteric DV-50: Any cdp's Significantly better?
Like alot of folks I have been on the sidelines reading this thread and a few things occured to me that I find interesting. First is the love or passion that some of you have for Alex's work (not you 711:) ). There is a double edge to this passion... 
Esoteric DV-50: Any cdp's Significantly better?
Guidocorona, I have great respect for Dan Wright. As for the Chicago group of "Iron Audiofools", their opinion means alot too. There is no doubt that Dan's mod unit is probably awesome. In the final analysis, most of us can't and sensibly would no... 
Esoteric DV-50: Any cdp's Significantly better?
Alex, I am inclined to agree with Bob on this one. In reading this thread I thought of the same question, why is Alex not selling his own player? For me and others, it sometimes does not make good sense to pay for a brand new unit and the basic op...

Which cable are better - Jaden or Bogden Audio?
Hey Chang,Taken from your response you have not listened to the Jaden Signatures. I suppose one can form opinions without comparisons. Would like to hear your opinion in a direct comparison to your Audio Note or Stealth. 
Clayton M100 Monoblocks??
I am a little late in responding but I will say this amp is superb. A natural balance from top to bottom but dynamic if the material demands it. Two distinct areas of excellance is top end and midrange are consistently well balanced tonally.Bass i... 
Odyessy/Stratos OR Monarchy Delux monos
You might want to add an additional amp that you may not have heard off. If you search for "Clayton" in the audiogon discussion forum you can get more insight.About 6 months ago, I started to look at the Odyssey and found it to be a bargain given ... 
Mod Phillips SACD 1000 How Good?
My player was mod by Stan Warren. For the money, his work is a bargain (Highly recommended since the sound is so much more musical and involving. Warning, it takes a good 200 plus hours for break-in. I am at the 120 hour mark and I am enjoing it m...
