Finished and playing beautifully! Now of course it will probably take the rest of my life for those Black gate caps to break in

Note the model 9002 Playstation on bottom right looking VERY sorry for itself!

Note the PS2 remote - got this on Ebay for 4!!! Works a treat.

Default 5501?

Well, I just won a 5501 on e-bay for $7. I'm hoping the statements above about it being nearly the same as the 100X's are true: means I got a good deal.

What are the first easy mods to be made to the 5501?

Replace the output stage (which is not identical but similar to the one of the 100x), recase the PSU, good damping.

Hi John

I'm didn't know you could use a PS2 remote for the playstation one - is there a particular model/brand remote to go for and does it come with the sensor for the console as well?

cheers

Hi! Yep I just got the official PS2 remote on Ebay and it came with the sensor. You can only use the basic controls this way however so lots of the keys are redundant.

I use the tiny remote on Mick's page.

When I get around to add controls on the PSX, I will use this remote instead. It's the "Mp3 Card" remote at the top of the page. It's pretty ugly. But the biggest fault is that it has no pause button. That's annoying since the pause button might just be the most important button on a remote. But it's the only remote I know of that allows you to use controls and remote at the same time. It uses the memory card slot.

Hi

While good reports of mods to the SCPH1002
using Black Gates and Nitais and Polypropolene
caps are all the go on this thread, I was
reflecting on the "Picking Capacitors"
PDF articles by Jung and Marsh. I was thinking
that maybe a few bypass caps might add to the
quality of the brew. Of course caps have improved
since the article was written but none the less
the cost of these added bits will not break the bank!

In particular I refer to figure 17 a, b & c on page 8
of this Pdf file.

I have always been a Polystyrene fan. Largest styrene cap I have
is a 1mf example and a crazy potted military 0.5mf 100v
that is huge. (It would not fit in a Playstation)

Here is the URL:
http://waltjung.org/PDFs/Picking_Capacitors_2.pdf

Hope it can add to the quality of our Greystation outputs.


Regards

AnthonyPT
