With zero support from those claiming to know this product etc., is there a point to upgrading the clock in the SFCD-1? Reading the measurements along with a clean front-end, tell me "it's pretty much" tossing funds in a less than positive direction.
I have no issue improving equipment except component readings from outer space
that in the long will only benefit someones bottom line... pc
