I have found a lot discussions on the philips units, but what about the VRDS-units of TEAC ? Have they alle the same drive / chipsset inside or are there differences ? Anyone listen experiences ?

Hi

It depends on your interest

Best drive / mechanics: VRDS 10, 20 and 25

Best price probably the VRDS 8, 9 or T1. Both have a derived drive from the 10, it is not as rock solid and to my experience you van get as far as with a 10. You have to work on them, all.

I do not have detailed info on the pickup units. All play CDR by the way....

They all use about the same chipset. Analogue parts differ though

Do not buy a 9 if you go for mods, the 9 is a disaster to work on due to the way it is assembled

I have 10 running for about 8 years now, no problems, though some units are somewhat sensitive. Firmware sometimes messes up the things too

regards

Interesting...I was more thinking wether the VRDS 10 has the same drive / digital chipset as the VRDS 25. I understand from you that this is the case, right ? So, there is no need to look for a much more expensive 25 when I only want the best drive around.

these drives are not alike.....
wrds 10 is a 4,x drive with analog servo
and the wrds 25 is a 3,2 drive with digital servo

and the best is from the x1 and p2 with a (i think) 2,x drive - very different and much more expensive.........

these days they only use sony drives........but years ago in there top of the line player, they used the 4,x drive as in teac wrds10 and also one of the krells.
in some ways the old copland was a nice player - after heavy modding.....

Copland has modded their VRDS-drive for their players (that use VRDS transport. (CDA288, CDA277). This is according to Ole Mřller founder and constructor of Copland.
BTW. I use Copland CDA288X moddes with XO2 clock, Mcap Supreme silver/oil caps, silver wire, plastic removal in caps etc. It plays wonderful. I have had the TEAC VRDS 10 also.
But now the copland is used as a transport.
