Thanks guys. What you suggest is what I intend to do - let it burn in for a while. I didn't notice any change really with the crystal, but the cap, definitely. I think I will leave the ERO in there for now and see how it goes. If it just "bloomed" a touch it would make all the difference - which I suppose is why I was asking what you guys heard.


My PS is not 100% sorted, and as you all say, I should probably pay some attention there first. I have a pretty respectable one, schottky diodes into a panasonic FM 1800uF, then the 7808 and then the blackgate 1000uF. So its a bit better than stock. I do have one of Peters boards and the parts to make a copy of his, although a bigger improvement may be available if I just got off my *** and bought a 50va transformer!

For someone else reading this.... as it is now the CDP has some of the best digital sound I have heard, really, really good. In fact, I'm pretty reluctant to change any of the components as the sound is so good. These are final little tweaks...



Fran

PS: the spare transport arrived yesterday from the ebay seller posted back a page or two. Looks perfect and at under a tenner, great value.

Default remote control

Hi again,

meant to ask this earlier, but has anyone had success using a universal remote control to control this unit?

Yes Fran I use the Philips Pronto...
Altough it still carries my homemade Wadia Logos (I will soon change that into the PiTbull Logo....) the buttons are re-programmed in the JVC ( the small remote comming with the boombox) commands...


Since you obviously cannot download the .ccf from
Remote Central Com....hahahahaha.... I used the learn function ....

It works from even the most difficult angles...

Abit off topic here. Does anybody know how to get a hold of Ronnie Cosetti (ok_sondz@hotmail.com)? I shipped him a transport and I have an issue with his payment that needs his attention.

Regards,
Dan

Default transport & real dac output

Bravo erik
looks like "Heaven on Earth" has come
in your house

Can i make this shigaclone function together as
Transport and cd player as the "same time"

due to limited budget for some diyer (for me too,
of course) for this time can we make this shiga function
as cd player just use this cd dac and we can connect
too as transport

after i got fund next day so i can build another dac
so i just connect the (rca) tranport on this shiga
and this will sing too

Is It Possible ? What mods we must make on it ?
