Electronic parts Modifications

Anyone have any experience with or opinions about the sonic value and workmanship of electronic parts modifications offered by Reference Audio Mods for CD/SACD players. They apparently "upgrade" the quality of parts in the power supply, the analog output stage, wiring and replace the stock clock with a superclock. I own a Marantz SA-11S1. Thanks

Re: Electronic parts Modifications

I was wondering about them myself. I've seen a mod listed for the Oppo 970 by them. I went to their site and the choice of parts seemed to make sense, but, the writing and spelling didn't inspire confidence. No one said good modders had to write well, but, poor writing and grammar on their site seems unprofessional. Their mods seem to get mentioned a lot... there must be some happy campers out there. When I have some spare dough, I think I might pick up an Oppo and try modding it myself.

Re: Electronic parts Modifications

Jeff, I had exactly the same thought about their writing and grammar and wondered what it implied about their ideas and quality control. Unfortunately, I don't have the skills and knowledge base to do it myself so I'll just see if others have had experience with them. I don't even know how likely it is that changing electronic parts would make a significant difference. Gkus
