The SACD-1 was build by Sony to demonstrate their new digital format SACD and DSD. It was a tank, overbuilt to the max to make sure they had a successful introduction of their new format. Top loading with a damping weight, over 50 pounds, it was the state of the art in digital playback for its time. Later modifiers like Richard Kern came up with ways to improve the clock and parts quality in the unit, further improving the sound. Richard optimized it for balanced operation but it can be used single-ended if necessary.
