Guys,

I received my MW SA8005 yesterday and wanted to give the unit 24 hours before any initial observations and know it will take 200+ hours before the caps and other components begin to burn-in. You will not be disappointed with this unit, it is flat out musical with rock stable imaging and a picture perfect soundstage!

Just spent the last two hours comparing the 9.0 to the 9.9 and am in agreement with Dan, the 9.0 is more resolving even though rolling in some Sylvania 13EM7 brought it at the 9.0 level with tube magic but just felt I'd go with the 9.0 and sell the 9.9 with the MW Sony 5400; the new owner will hear it at its best...

The tonality of this SA8005 is unbelievable, very natural, live and organic sounding. I am quite impressed with the work Dan and his team has done with this Mod and now the long wait on giving it time to burn-in and settle into the system. More to follow...

ok - great - your initial impressions after say 3 days would be nice - after a month would be better and more realistic - after 2 months would be ideal and the true reality of how you like it

I received my unit today, but no power supply.  Dan and Kristin mailed them together but UPS thought it would be funny to delay the arrival of the PS.

The power supply arrived today and we are up and running.  I will play stuff tonight with the stock tubes and then put in some different ones tomorrow.

NICE!

The stock JAN Philips are fine but you will likely find, as in most tubed audio, better tubes will be a nice step up for you in this player.

The JAN phillips are very nice.  I have a pair of Tung Sols and a pair of Raytheons.  I also have some rectifiers that I will try out.

That's Great! It will sound even better tomorrow and thereafter... I was up until 0200 this morning, this MW SA8005 just pulls you into the acoustic space and I'm only at day 6.

The Jans are quite good and I have replaced them with Tung-Sols a few days ago.

OK, It's 1:49 AM CST and I had to make myself turn off the tunes!!!!! This player sucks you into the music and doesn't let go !!!! Ordered some TungSol 5687's today for the player and a Philips 5R4GYS for the PS 9.0. Looking forward to see how it responds to tube rolling.

It was the Stomach Bug and it went through the whole family, we're feeling better and hopefully we'll be at 100% in a few days...
