Default U.K Modders missing a trick ?!

I have seen so much dedicated to the "modding the Trends" thread (having posted on it and now receive prompts) that I cannot understand why more of you have not modded the Kensington S2000 i-pod dock.

Check out the "is this the cheapest T-Amp in U.K" or something similar and get along to you nearest Richer Sounds. I have 4 modded S.I's a Trends 10.1 and a Teac Tripath amp. My amp of choice is the modded Kensington (and yes I left the tiny inductors as standard !)

Do you mean the SX2000 with the intergrated NX panel speaker? Have you got any pictures of the pcb? Which tripath chip does it use sounds very interesting.

I have just finished modding the Kensington. With all the parts and case it will end up costing about 60.

Audio1st. I see you have wound your own inductors. I replaced the inductors with some between 8uh and 10uh. It didn't like them and gave me a load of distortion. What values are your's ?
