Do not know if you know who Bascom King is but he is a very well respected engineer, electronics designer and reviewer for decades. He requested a BDP-1 for review purposes and forward me this yesterday:
I thought I would give you an update on my continued experience with the BDP-1. As you know, I turned in the review to TAV a few weeks ago and I have continued to enjoy its use in my system
I also took the BDP-1 to a friends system and the BDP-1 through a Wyred4Sound DAC-2 modified to drive this special tube output stage into his very high resolution system and the BDP-1 sounded materially better than the previously very high level of musicality that this system has with the Modwright modified Sony NS9100ES player playing high resolution Digital Audio Discs made from various hi-rez files"
P.S. – Bascom purchased the BDP-1 for his own system
