Salut bricolo

J ai achete le 723. Le transport est tres bon et je vais le modifier petit a petit. D abord l etage d amplification de sortie, puis le DAC.

C est le lecteur CD le plus tweake, donc il y a plein d infos dessus. En plus il est pas cher ...

Apres je peut pas comparer avec des lecteurs a 1000 euros ....

What about an used Marantz 38 or 48 with a (DIY ) output stage, like the tjoeb. Does somebody knows which modifications they have and schematics for it? Yes, I have one and if I could get the schematics I would do it.

Hi Bricolo
PHILIPS CD 723 costs (new) approx. 120 Eu. and it is really good. Very detailed, balanced, and has a very good tracking system. I bougt it 2 years ago as a quinea pig for tweaking, but it proved to be an excelent buy on it's own (after some easy tweaking, it became much better). If you are for 1 bit economic player, have a look at it (CD 725 is made from the same ingredients).
Regards
George

I have also the ROTEL RCD-965BX, which is a serious piece of equipment. They don't compare on the build quality (actually rotel always hiddes diamonds inside the lids of it's equipments), but also not on the price. The ROTEL is more musical, more layed back, but it lacks the speed and the detail of the PHILIPS. Now rotel rests in the living room and philips in my room for every day and night long listening (It is also equiped with headphones out, digital (RCA) out, and telecontrol with volume.
Regards
George
