Hello all

Is it possible to separate the display screen from the white bracket?

Thanks

Edit: Forgot to mention. What is the pourpose of the misterious component in the red rectangle on the left, connected to a black wire?.

Got the Wyde Eye cable today. This is a 75 ohm cable with real 75 ohm bnc connectors - they sell it as a word clock cable pn WE-BB. I have real 75 bnc on both the transport and the dac and the source and termination are actually 75 ohms - go figure. (I'm an EE..)

Anyway this set up sounds at least as good as the mystery prototype spdif (High end) cable I was given eons ago to evaluate which required kludgy adaptors to use with the bnc jacks on my gear.

Not too expensive compared to the usual high end cable tom-foolery, and it really does seem to be a little better than the very good cable it replaced.

I'm not sure which length you got, but 6ft length usually sounds better than 3 ft, at least that was the case with Belkin I'm using

I am going to post a picture of the bearing puller that I use, inappropriate method of pulling out the platter will cause the shaft out of round of the shaft permanent !!

YESSS...I soldered the 300/100 resistors in place...and received a beautiful lock...spot on.....

I bought a nice 2 x 8 V trafo CT and the blackgates FK 1000/35 and N 1000/50 as well as the MRS860 but then the MRS560
(according to the shops advice) and a heatsink and breadboard
so if it keeps raining I know what to do tomorrow....

That's good news.. Should be interesting to see what effect the new power supply has on performance. The change was not that subtle in mine, and finally changing to BG on the output of the regulator was audible as well.

My digital interconnect is actually rather short, only 18" - I've tried longer cables and very long ones occasionally do perform better. Not sure when the reflection arrives back at the input receiver, but so far I have not heard audible degradation with a couple of very short cables I've tried.. Most of my commercial spdif cables are odd lengths, but I have tried standard 75 ohm coax in varying lengths and it was always worse sounding than any of the specifically spdif cables I have.. No real idea why, presumably a TDR would answer that question...

Must admit that with those resistors "The PitBull" becomes a different ballgame...!!!!!!!!!!

I am really enjoying cd after cd and finally can understand the hype....you simply can here the potential...IT IS THERE...

I most definitely am going to invest time and money...

That is the right tool....

BTW I hope Okapi will take orders in a group buy what he mentioned earlier on otherwise I am most certainly interested in your offer...anyway I am interested in your pics of the clamp..

Peter are you using Okapi's clamp at the moment or are you also waiting untill Okapi finds time to help out....
