Jeeez,

I was stating a desired kit price of $500-750 to consider it reasonable for ME...

No implied "real" price. It could be $2000 for all I know!

Sorry for getting you upset...

Best Regards,

Dale

Im quite sure that the position today is that they only sell SACD-kits to companies.

The other information is 6-7 months old.

Regards
Carl

I do not see $500 totally unreasonable for such a high-end transport. If a price comes up, I will express my definate interest in the SACD1000 kit. I am very close to buying the cdpro2 unit, and an extra $200 would not be bad for sacd capability.

After re-reading the CD-Pro2 webpage more closely, I found the following:

"DAISy is the official distributor of the parts but does not run a set maker operation nor can or will DAISy support private persons. Industrial supplies is the DAISy core business. DAISy nor Homeoptics supply other DIY kits. This means we do not make a tuner kit available and we do not offer DVD or SACD parts. Only the CD-PRO2 DIY kit is offered."

It may be that we, as a group, might meet their minimum quantity requirements. If so, they MAY sell to us, but, given the explicit statements to the contrary reproduced above, I doubt it.

I don't know the quality of this SACD transport, but this kit offers a VFD over the LED that comes with the CD-Pro2, as well as a couple other extras... Since the CD-Pro2 is already US$420, if this is a comparable quality transport, I would guess it'll cost quite a bit North of US$500.

Still, do others think it's worth a phone call?

Definately worth a phone call, to at least see if it is possible, and the cost. If they give a minimum order quantity, we can work from there.

No one seems to know the price: I emailed as a company and didn't get a reply.

Probably cheaper and less trouble to buy a cut price player and modify to heart's content!

To quote Allen Wright, it seems that dealing with Phillips is like dealing with a government department. I wonder why companies advertise these things on the net, and then make it difficult to obtain?

Sounds good. If you are looking for a cheap player to mod, the SCD-CE775 is now available from goodguys.com for $180 shipped. ($199 - 10% (sale) and free shipping) The discount will appear in your cart when you click buy me

earlier link failed.. here is a shorter link:
http://makeashorterlink.com/?N28B42E51

Seems like the best cheap player to modify, and has no video to worry about, unlike the ns500v player. I have been trying to get a sony 222es, but I haven't been able to find any around. I will see how it goes with the CE775.
