    The LPS supply will improve the video, because it will provide better and cleaner power to all video processing chips. This includes all HDMI and digital out audio and video circuits.

    I am working on the proto board right now!

    Thanks,

    I was not aware he upgraded the digital PS, but I checked and he does indeed fiddle with the PS for digital it in the 95 mod, and will probably do even more to it in the 105 mod. So I was incorrect stating the Modwright mods don't impact the digital output.

    I am currently avoiding all mods, unless it is the only way to get a specific feature, such as the Vanity93 digi out board. I hate the economics of modding - You write off almost the entire mod value, right out of the gate.
    ---- Like I said, I have various Denon players (3930CI among them), and they ALL failed!

    ...Or taking a really long time to read CDs, or not being able to read SACDs no more, or to not being able to adjust the lens to an Hybrid Multichannel SACD; like it cannot switch between the CD layer, the Stereo SACD layer, and the Multichannel SACD layer. ...And I'm not talking about players that took years to develop those very serious and frustrating issues; but within two years of owning them (& brand new)!
    And there isn't a guy who took more better care of his electronic equipment here than I on this planet! ...Just ask Mom.

    The only thing I truly want in life is the perfect transport (lasting, durable, silent), the perfect sound (), and very affordable.
    But most importantly: SIMPLICITY & JOY.

    I'll chime in to agree here about Denon,very nice sounding players for the price, but I've had two since 2000, neither modified in any way, each lasted only about 4 years before laser failure and a prohibitively expensive repair bill. One was used only in my HT/2nd system, it couldn't have been used more than 2 hrs/d, probably less.

    ---- I believe you, because I know a thing or two about the Ayre Acoustics DX5 "Universal A/V Engine": $9,950

    One has just to look inside to have an idea.
    By the way, that player is based around an Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray player.

    And I admit to still being baffled about Lloyd's experience with the 83 vs the 95 used as a transport. As I said, mechanically the transport of the 95 is notably and obviously better than that of the 83; I know there is more to the "sound" of a transport than just its mechanical properties, but still...

    A couple of things to consider with the 95: it sounds better both on its own and as a transport with the cover removed (I have mine on shelf 2 of my rack), and depending on the galvanic isolation of the DAC used it may well sound better with a glass Toslink rather than coax (no BNC available on the stock unit, of course)

    Hi Rbbert...i have no idea. it feels to me like some kind of shielding, isolation of some sort. sound is not as mechanical. a complete WAG.
