-quote by last bros standing ;

I'm using:

carver pxm900
denon dp72 (not that it matters here)
bryston 1b
b&w nautilus bookshelf w/ b&w subwoofer

to test the difference between:

nakamichi mb-4s (purchased in 1990!)
against Wadia 860 with all of the software upgrades.

Max, at first the wadia sounds "louder" but when you dial the volume controls on the wadia down to 95 (instead of always having to turn them up to 100) there is no difference in volume. I listened to many types and styles of music for over 3 months. When Ron, the owner of the wadia, hooked everything up for me, we listened to both cd players for 3 or 4 hours and neither of us could tell the difference. We spent hours moving the speakers around and adjusting the subwoofer before a-b ing between the 2 players. Granted, my cables are old but both players sounded so good, you would have never known that cables were an issue.

hope this helps.
