Jesús, my Spanish is not that good as Audiofanatics but if you can supply a copy of it I too would be very happy. Muchos gracias
I would be happy to supply any means for transfer:
1. Snail mail or
2. Fax or
3. Scan & email

And I would be happy to pay for any costs you make (Paypal).

Audiofanatic, as you also live in Utrecht we can probably copy it after you or I get it.

I just called the Teac service. They still have this part and will send it to me. It was about 6 euro (18 incl. rembours shipment)

They also said it is the part which breaks most often.

So now I will have a fully functioning VRDS T-1 for 118 euro.

Aesthetics? A PC doesnt have to be an eyesore in the least just get a nice snazzy looking case like I did. Besides its almost hidden where it is placed anyway. All you see is the front and a little bit of the top. Plus its not trying to compete with a jet aircraft, a zalman flower cooler keeps the noise to a minimum, I can barely hear the PC at the listening position, having said that I can barely hear it at all.

The T1 has problems with disk skipping at the ends of CD's when it reads the outter edges of the disks, dont ask me why I dont know. I have corrected the problem a few times, but this involves opening up the unit and messing around with the clamp mechanism on the top of the disk. If I move the disk closer or further away from the laser by either applying pressure above the laser on the disk, or on the other side of the disk so as to give more height between laser and disk, this can solve the problem. But after solving the problem ensues again, requireing more fiddleing. Any ideas? I do have a service manual.

I would sell it appart from this one problem.

Did you meant wouldn't?

I think so!

Try to clean and oil the whole mechanisme and then try it again, I think the problem will be solved for a long time.

BTW use an oil tipe that doesn't damagge the plastic parts!


Best regards,


Audiofanatic

5th,

Unfortunately, my PC is trying very hard to imitate a jet plane (AMD XP3200+ Radeon9800Pro etc.) and I want to get away from it as far as possible when playing music. Actually, I turn it off when I listen to my system downstairs because the noise still bugs me (wooden floors, house anno 1906)

I know you could build a very silent pc that could double as a music jukebox of sorts and even as a HTPC. This would cost me far more however than this T1 I bought. For playing movies I can also use my XBOX if I want to, but it is very noisy. I am very sensitive to noise when listening, even when I play music very loud I sometimes get annoyed by for example my girlfriend moving around or sometimes just being there and breathing next to me on the couch. This is not a joke.

Using a PC in my stereo system would for one give me a serious case of cognitive dissonance. Besides, I like the battleship build of the Teac not to mention the couch potato comfort of remote control.

That said, I think the main reason you experience better sound could be because of putting the songs on the hard drive. I think there are dedicated audio units available with a built-in hard drive that do this and have better suited power supplies and circuits than your run of the mill PC.

I was planning to buy the transport August is talking about, but Aren wouldn't sell it to me without a DAC. The whole shipment thingy for just the Teac to Belgium was to much of a fuzz for him.

So August is the lucky ******* now

I couldn't contact Teac, emailadres on their site doesn't work.
