Default Anyone listened to 14bit NOS ?

Hello all!

I donīt know whether the Dynastation from Dynavox is known internationally, it is based on the Playstation PS1. These guys were smart enough to get a large stock before the hype had really started, but now they are out.
I just visited their website and saw they now mod first generation Philips players with 14bit 4 x OS ("equivalent 16bit") to true 14bit NOS.

Is this just rejecting progress in principle, or does it make sense sonically? Will it be the next digital vintage hype? And why didnīt Philips build it NOS if this is so much better?


Regards,
Oliver

Those guys want to charge 1600 € for a CD100 with bypassed os filter and analog filter and some minor mods.

Wasn't there a thread about 14 bit non os here on DIY audio ?

I modded my Marantz CD-74 to NOS. It has TDA1540P inside. It sounded fabulous. 14-bit NOS has not been in production because the specs are not too good, I guess.

I bridged SAA7030 in Philips CD300 http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...178#post881178 . It sounded nicer to my ears, but now I already understand my initial requirement (clean square at the output) was a technical nonsense. Perhaps the early digital filters in SAA7030 did not help the sound and their removal from the signal path reduced the distortion (but brought another type due to the analog filter not tuned to fs/2).
