Dude, you're missing out. You'll be hard pressed to find a more generous & knowledgeable group of audio nuts anywhere, I we are trying to HELP you. There are MANY here who's abilities with a soldering iron, schematic & test equipment are par excellence', BillD among the most talented.
So the advice you been given is not about being able to afford; we are some cheap-ass bastards here, always looking for a deal. Kingman probably has more Carver pieces than ANYONE & if he tells you that CDP isn't working your time, I ASSURE you it's from experience.
If you continue to be a jackass, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. If you decide to stop whining & stick around, I think you'll find a world of unselfish information.
