Default Coupling Rotel RCD855 & Marantz CD52

Hi,

I've never liked the sound of my marantz cd-52 (removing muting transistors only helped a bit) and am thinking about replacing the output stage with that of a broken Rotel RCD-855. The latter sounded a million times better than the Marantz, opamp pedigree (ne5532 vs. tda1541) suggests that the output stage has a part in this. Any comments on actual implementation or a copy of the rotel schematic are very welcome!!


Thanks
Simon
