Default Inca Design Katana problem..

I have a digital out problem with my CD player. The optical out is perfect but the electrical out seems to have what sounds like a misfire. As it warms up, bits seem to go missing.
I've checked for dry joints and all seems fine, any help to where I should look?
Having opened it up, I have now got another dilemma, below is how it should look...

Now this is what the inside of mine looks like. Is it fake or can you change such a fundamental part mid production and keep the same sound?

Am I wrong or they have just moved the transport circuitry from underneath the transport itself. It does not look as if you have been had.

Hello audio1st,
May be totally of the mark here, but it is not unheard of for the master clock to be slightly off frequency, by enough to upset some equipment that it is partnered with.Strange it would be O.K. with optical and not electrical outputs, but weirder things have happened.Not very easy to check accurately, if you have a multimeter that measures frequency and a test disc with test tones on it try and see if output(on the audio output sockets) is at correct frequency.Use as high a frequency as you can, 20Khz if possible.If it's out by 20Hz thats a 0.1% error, quite a lot really.
Worth a try if nothing else.

The VAM1202 equipped version is the SEF model.

I managed to find a picture of the basic model interior, so yes that seems to be the answer.
So the VAM 1202 is the better transort
I wonder what the smaller red capacitors in the SEF models upgraded signal path are?
