Shanling CD T-80 Problems
I have a Shanling cd-T80 that I have been very pleased with for the money- untill now. The problem I have is that the remote control has died on me leaving the volume stuck at setting 25 & there is no way of adjusting the volume without the remote control!!
I have spoken to Shanling and there is now way to restore the defaults without the remote. They quoted US$100 for a replacement remote direct from the factory, a distributor quoted US$180- a lot of cash for a remote that I would hardly ever use!
Does anybody know if there is a code that can be put into a 'universal remote' to rectify my problem?
On some of the higher priced Shanling CDP I have read that bypassing the Volume control chip is a worthwhile mod, this might be a solution that improves the sound quality as well as restoring my volume to full -has anybody tried this with the CD T-80?
Does anybody have a circuit diagram?
Does the optical out go via the volume chip, if it does not then maybe I will buy a cheap chinese DAC?
The digital out is not adjustable by volume control.
BTW: there is no any optical out :)
just coax ;)
and you can check the remote control itself, I guess the battery is not connected properly...
about the "cheap chinese DAC":
I think this would be a very bad solution, since the DAC and the buffer stages are the biggest benefit of this player.
don't loose it!
I first asked this question on 'Head-Fi' but the problem has not been resolved so I thought I would try the learned members of this forum....
I have tried the batteries of course & I have had the remote apart. I tried adjusting the tightness of the screws as was suggested by a member of Head-Fi forum (he had probs with his shanling remote). IT IS DEAD! One day it worked the next it didn't.
Cheap Chinese Dac - I am thinking of somthing like the zhaolu 2.5 which should not sound any worse than the Shanling. At US$129 it makes better sense than buying another poor quality remote? If I ever manage to get the volume back to full on the CDP the Zhaolu will be used with a pc link to make use of a spare laptop I have sitting around.
