Hi Erik

Certainly the led is being feed (fed ?) by that larger board on left. Compare to my pic on post #1234, a simpler layout. To light my led (ok sorry) I had to feed it from 24VDC PS , grey and orange wires, 10K series to grey wire.

Hi Cloners,
have you tried bypassing litics with small non-smd tantals? my findings of yesterday are very promissing.... just put 0,47 to each (omiting 0.1u) at print side, ca 10 pcs total and report what you hear

Andy - have you also replaced the original 'litics or are you just bypassing them?
I am listening to my 51 now: Stage 1, still in original case, just with digital output lead exiting through a hole drilled in the plastic. Even in this basic state it sounds extremely promising.

I've done a lot of mods, including external clock, but being experienced from previous 4 clones, this one left with original caps, exept input PS and 0.1. Yes, these tantals bypass original litics, and it was last mod that came in mind, the concept taken from tweaking el chepo DAC.

Lucky day for me. While looking at and assemblying a spare transport I found where I went wrong with my first one. As previously posted after replacing all the 'R' caps in playermods.pdf and my player would spin up and read "00" on the display. I found that I installed E3 and E4 cap slightly too high and it was blocking the movement of the laser mechanism. I'm now back up and running with all the mods and very happy.

Because of this piece of luck I now have a spare mechanism if anyone's interested.

Also, I think I read in a previous post that someone's remote didn't work beyond two feet. I was using mine today and it worked fine at seventeen feet.

Regards,
Dan

Have you experience with external clocks with this clone...could you inform me I am curious about its effects (be it in your setup)
I am planning to try the citizen....the trichord and the tent in this contraption to see what it brings....with and without dedicated power supply....

Today the R1 R2 R3 R4 R5 were removed and the results were stunning...this transport became suddenly promising....the immediate effects were bucketloads of air and the focus became better.....

The ps after 24 hours burn-in took care of a much better low en less distortion in the upper registers (piano)....however after the removal of the R1-5 there was no distortion any longer noticeable and the lows became more firm....


This is fun and already a killer for the better transports
