At the recent T.H.E. show, a very cool manufacturer who shall remain anonymous played me some tunes on his system using a Sony Playstation I as his CD source.
It sounded surprisingly good!
Of course, the next stop was Ebay, where these babies sell for about 20 to 30 bucks, including games! Now that one is winging its way westward, I figured I'd ask who's been playing (music) with these babies.
Also, here's a link to a thread about it at DIY Audio forums...
This thing seems ripe for mini-mods and cable play!
It also strikes close to what I think is the beating heart of hi-fi: finding things that sound better than they should.
More info when it arrives and I can torture it a little.
*Disclaimer: I will be performing these torture tests myself, any and all torture will be my responsibility and mine only. No torture will be outsourced.
