Screws are accessed by turning the unit upside down--small holes covered by tags that read--warranty void if removed. You need a long thin screwdriver. The problem becomes getting the cover back on--you are shooting blind through the holes hoping ...

I have been using one for a few months now. Simaudio LE amp and preamp, Basis 1400 table with a Dynavector 20xH cartridge. I have used it both balanced and single ended.I find it offers better performance than the phono stage that was built into M... 
XLO responsiveness

Has anyone tried out new Mapleshade speaker wires
I am using the Golden Helix Plus version. I like them better than XLO Ultra6. After using the mapleshade cables for 2 months, I put the XLO cables back in the sytem. More bass, but it seemed to color the midrange. I put the mapleshades back in and...

Musical Concepts Modifications
Had a 5802 modified by John--was one of the best sounding amps I had ever owned. I moved and sold off all my gear, and am now rebuilding. I am seriously looking at having him mod a 5802 again for me--that or a Pass X-250.

MF CD Pre24 soundstage performance
My experience with this unit is that 1. It is a very good preamp--I found it to be better than the Adcom GFP 750 (even modded), but a bit less than a pass X 2.5.2. The CD player is very revealing. Renders detail very well. Was better than my modde...
