Squeezebox SB3 update 2

Posted 15th October 2010 at 08:56 AM by audi0

I got the last capacitor for the analogue stage upgrade in the mail today, I had a couple of hours of spare time so made a start. DE-soldering of surface mount components has got to be the worst job! It's slow painstaking work avoiding damage to pads and tracks, and this took the longest part of the job. A slight modification to the IC adapter was necessary to avoid hitting a capacitor otherwise reassembly was simple.
Plugged it in and away it went (sometimes I surprise myself!)
Nice sound immediately and I'm sure its only going to get better once the Elna's burn in!
I was surprised how sturdy the adapter is, there was no issue plugging in the IC, so chip rolling would be extremely easy.
A worthwhile modification? Yes I think so!
