Can I use these caps or should I buy some 0.047u as per your indications? (My output caps are 4.7uF mundorfs MKP).

Is there a rule for these bypasses ? Should I use 1/10 of the original value or 1/100 ?

Regards

Ricardo

PS Just ordered some 0.1u Teflon CCCP caps just like yours for the Riaa circuit.

Thank you so much for the precious help... The Riaa is starting to sound as big as my superhyper CD53.
Try the ERO. Its a proven bypass. I recommended the K-40 0.047 because I saw you use it, its a good bypass also, and I thought you may had more in hand.

The 0.1 FT3s will make you spin.

For a record to sound as bold as a hyper modded CDP is no mean feat. Consider the signal level domain differences. If you achieved that plus the vinyl's uniquely esoteric and natural presentation, I guess you did more than well already. There is more to come with full use of Shinkoh, output cap tuning and FT3s. Hold on.

Hi Salas

To be honest, only recently I managed to get coherent and detailed sound from the CDP. (I needed to create dedicated psuīs for each chip and the last one on the decoder made the magic)

It took more than one year to mod and finally it outclassed the TT in all aspects but the sweet trebble that vinyl can produce. (I still have to do the coax mod between mech and HF amp to get closer.. )

Now I got a tremendous boost in the TT with your Riaa and it is so promicing that I believe soon the CDP will need a revamp.

Today I changed from 1k82 to 2k21 Rload and I like the added trebble presence but maybe it is too much.... Almost getting there.

Ricardo

PS: Just canīt stop

Did you try the 1832s over the Mundorfs yet?

Not yet..... just listening after the rload change... Now bass is ponderous and treble has very good attack.. A little bright maybe.. fabulous as is

Must use this power and smooth it.

I would see what happens with the output cap's tonal contribution by experiencing some bypass options early, so to mix it with the Rload tuning balance.

I will bypass now and see what happens. If it gets brighter I might use 2k (if I find it).
