Default 2 channel MW 95 vs. 105 differences?

Hi, I have the MW 95 with the better Sophia and LPS tubes... I only use it for 2 channel listening. For those of you who have A and B'd the MW 95 vs. 105 for 2 channel listening, how much of a difference is there?

Obviously, I'd take a bath selling the MW95 as all the other sellers on Agon are.

Thanks.

Mike - I wrote my review of the differences between the two players in my system here: http://www.audioaficionado.org/modwr...-vs-105-a.html

My view in your case is that if you are happy with your MW 95, and do not need the additional digital input capabilities or other features of the 105, then keep the 95 and swap out/upgrade your PS 9.0 for the new PS 9.9. I believe that is the biggest difference between the two players, and will get you more than 50% of the way there. The cost for the upgrade ($500) is minimal relative to selling your 95 and starting over. In my case I wanted the digital inputs and was able to do the upgrade. Hope that helps...let me know what you decide to do.
