So Erik,
What if any effect have you noticed with the blue LEDs lighting the disk?

Curious to know if this does anything at all. Mine sounds very good at this point..

BTW, the blue led looks pretty cool lighting the display.

I'm thinking of the blue light approach when I disassemble the transport to install clearaudio's clamp & puck assembly.

Maybe consider dimming the led if you use the blue? My BAT VK-D5SE has blue leds and they really shine brightly at night with the room darkened. Just a thought.

How is that....Too Blue For You...

Anyway I will come back on it because I always take my time to
pass an audio-verdict.....

As far as a first impression for the hungry ones...I seem to notice more quietness and a bit more air...

Well, there is a good reason why the police use blue lights.

Maybe I see that blue light and get paranoid!

Briefly touching on the topic of DACs. I have a NOS TDA1543 and a NOS TDA1541. The TDA1543 is one of Peter's designs and while it is VERY good it's my experience that a good NOS TDA154A takes things to the next level.

Regards,
Dan

Perhaps the method shown here could be adapted, by applying the leverage against a piece of wood placed between the platter and the metal frame?

Current state of play - mounted rigidly on granite. (audio1st showed the way, IIRC )
The granite is quite 'ringy', so will need to be damped somehow, perhaps by attaching bitumen pads to the back.
And then..... the flashing blue lights!
