I recently took a gamble on eBay for a Enlightened Audio Designs T8000 transport. The seller listed it as-is since they could not get the unit to read discs so, it was cheap. Since I already have a EAD TheaterVision, I thought it may be worth the gamble for the price. If nothing else, it would be nice to have the two together. When I received it, it worked 100%. I can only assume that the seller tried a DVD, and thought it was junk when it didn’t work.

As an interesting note, I can confirm through EAD’s sales brochure that the unit is based on a CLD-702. However, EAD also states that the upgraded the video chain. Now I have to wonder what the upgrades were. The video is far superior to my TheaterVision, which is an upgraded CLD-99. Anyone have thoughts on what to look for when taking off the cover?

From little I know they usually upgrade caps, the power supply and some other possible chips?
I've seen one player that they basically took the top off dropped it into the new casing and put all the components on the side.
Please post pictures so we can see it, these expensive players were hardly ever opened and I know Ty/Disclord always knew about these players
but never had many or any to compare and show others.

Maybe I can try to upload some pictures shortly after I am allowed to "work" from home due to the recent COVID-19.
