This is a very special Marantz UD9004 player that has been modded by Tube Research Labs. I am selling with it a custom-made isolation platform made by Silent Running Audio.
Paul Weitzel of TRL needs no introduction. His mods are highly sought after and his work on this player has brought it up to a level of performance that exceeds players at several times its price. In addition to this mod, I had Paul install an Isoclean fuse that has been treated by Synerg. Research. The fuse is not user accessible and cannot be purchased as it was treated as a favor for me by the company.
The units performance is now breathtaking and will simply blow your mind on both two-channel audio and video. This giant will slay much more larger giants. On audio, it is in a number of ways better than my friends Esoteric player. On video, I have the OPPO BP-93 here and, viewed on a large projection screen, the Marantz picture is much clearer, less pixelly and has much better colors. I was surprised by the latter since the Oppo is a good player for the money. This is no doubt, the best sounding and looking UD9004 you will ever encounter.
The custom-made SRA R Series fp isolation base is the frosting on the cake. It was made for this unit and really ups the performance ante and also the appearance as it is custom sized. Also, it really is future proof as it can be changed to work with any different component by SRA for only a minimal fee. The base costs $500 alone.
I am selling to put the money towards a pair of truly expensive speakers that I have fallen in love with. The player and platform are both in mint condition and have no scratches or other imperfections that I could see. I have babied them in a smoke free environment and covered them when not in use.
