SACD1000 kit experiences?
Has anyone built the SACD kit based on the Philips ASD-1.1 module? I went to DAISy to order a CD Pro2 and found the SACD kit... Does anyone have any opinions on the sound quality of this kit compared to the CD Pro2 or other commercially-available SACD players?

I'm guessing there must be something I'm not seeing... It seems too good to be true...

If this is to any help.

I got the information from daisy-laser some time ago that you have to buy at least 10 kits and I donīt think they were particually cheap either. But they also said that the prices were likely to drop.

I have emailed the Philips person responsible without getting any response on the kit.

The people at daisy-laser usually are available at the phone.

I think the SACD parts only are intended for commersial companies and not for diy:ers.

If the minimum order is 10 units, maybe we could organize a powerbuy? If these are premium transports and a reasonable price per unit can be had, I would think that there would be at least 10 people on this board who'd rather build their own than mod a commercial unit, no?

If a reasonable price was found, I would be in on the order.

May be able to count me in too.

you should probably translate "Reasonable price" from 'brian-ese' so everybody would know what to expect when you say 'I am in'.
For the uninitiated: reasonable price=for free.

How about 500. for the kit?

dc 26th July 2002 09:20 PM

??? What are you talking about??? 500. what? Did you talk to someone at daisy? Is that the price you'd like to pay? Did someone start an auction unannounced and 500 something-or-other is your first bid?

AFAIK, this is all based on a conversation Carl Ekblom had with someone at Daisy many moons ago. No one has any current, definitive information on this right now - like whether they're actually even willing to sell to individuals, what quantity is required, PRICE.... I would have called this afternoon, but, by the time I got to it, it was well past 5pm in the Netherlands.

I doubt there's anything anyone can do about this until at least Monday.
