Burn your power cables in PROPERLY with Haglabs Frycorder
Give the OP a break.  Who are you to refute what he heard?   I am neutral on this one but nothing useful is gained by mocking and disparaging others on this site.    
Which Vintage CD Player To Use As A Transport?
I would never suggest buying a vintage CD player for use as a transport.  What breaks down in CD players? It's the transport.  Just doesn't make sense.  Why would you want a high mileage transport?  
Minimum Power Needed to Drive Klipsch Cornwall IVs? - Considering Erhard_Audio Ray
@katokaelin   Obviously many diverse opinions here.  One qualifier to my prior comments.  The system I use the Ray in, with my significantly less efficient speakers, provided plenty of juice for all of the music I used that system for BUT when I h... 
Flexible Power Cords
Highly suggest Supra Lorad 2.5 if you are into DIY.  Super flexible, affordable, high performance cable. Custom make all your cables to the exact size you want.  
Minimum Power Needed to Drive Klipsch Cornwall IVs? - Considering Erhard_Audio Ray
I have the Ray in a secondary system driving Omega monitors in a larger room and it has plenty of punch. I never felt it lacking in wattage or limited in that regard.   I use the built in passive pre and have done some upgrades with Miflex coupli... 
Seeking Budget CD Player Suggestions
As above.  The actual mechanical transport/laser can be very affordable if you are into DIY (do not know about the McIntosh unit but Marantz/Denon traverse units are not too difficult to replace) -----if you can locate a source.  One would hope a ... 
Burn your power cables in PROPERLY with Haglabs Frycorder
@jhnnrrs  Hey, I never said I endorsed the product.  I said I would not trust "wire re-distributers" any more than I would trust Hagerman. Have you never heard  "hokey pseudo-scientific word salad slinger" verbiage to endorse a cable??

Not sure I would trust "high end" cable manufacturers more than than this down to earth designer.

Interesting.  I have always been skeptical of such devices.  But when it comes from someone that makes (from what I have read) some fine high value gear, I pause and wonder.  He also makes a similar unit for IC's, amps, etc.  Unlike units that sho... 
LTA Ultralinear Plus Integrated vs. Pass Labs XA25/EAR 868pl
Two members with divergent views----yet civil!  Thank you gentleman.  
Annoying newbie CD/SACD player question
Never heard the Yamaha.  What I recall reading is a somewhat brighter house sound to this brand.  Also thought I read about reliability concerns--do some research there. The only thing I don't like with the Denon is the (often typical) small disp... 
Annoying newbie CD/SACD player question
@plasticspoon8 As I type I am listening to that exact SACD player.  It is a solid player with neutral sound--the Marantz sound may be a touch on the warmer side of neutral.  They are both excellent players but a new Denon 1600ne is a killer bargai...

Suggest you check out Audimute.  
Do You Buy Speakers Without Hearing Them?
My favorite speaker of all time was bought without a demo BUT it was based on much feedback that in one case included a common denominator (Magnepan 1.7) that we both had owned and which served as a reference point.  The new speaker exceeded expec...

That is simply not true.  Blanket statements should always raise a red flag.
