I do not know if it is the new MIT balanced interconnects, or it took my Sony XA5400ES SACD player a year to burn-in, but the darn thing sounds really good now. Unfortunately, this has caused me to have gone on a SACD binge, and I have been buying anything on SACD.
Recently, I received three SACDS by the Mandelring Quartett of Shostakovich’s string quartets. This is volume 2, 3, and 4. Volumes 1 and 5 are still waiting to be shipped by Amazon.
Highly recommended. I love Shostakovich when he deals with strings. His symphonies are not that good in my mind.
Anyway, today I came home, and these SACDs were on the front porch.
