Yes, but I noticed you were crouched behind the sofa and we could only see your head.....

Oh, and congrats & thanks Ray, this is the finest thread and has taught me a lot (and cost me a bit too).

Lee.

Congrats Ray!!! Quite an impressive feat, even with a few fluff posts thrown in toward the end.

Now, maybe there's a world record for thread length within reach?

Ray, thanks for the inspiration.

I came across this thread when it was still in it's infancy, (replies in the 100s)

At that stage I'd never wielded a soldering iron in anger and knew next to nothing about electronics.

Since then I've modded my 63KI, 67ose and a cambridge audio player. I've built a headphone amp from a bare circuit board and most recently built a valve amp. Imbetween I've put together two othe amps and a dac from module boards.

I still know next to nothing about electronics (apart from not to stand in a puddle of water when you first connect the mains!)

Pete

Oh, Chelsea! Well i'm not into sports. I'm one of those guys that sits inside with his hot iron on 30*C summer days . Only watch ice-skating when the dutch have to skate... But well done by Van der Sar, he's dutch too you know .

I have those day too, when there's a few guys visiting with trunks full of equipment and the women flee the house and go shopping . All day tech-talk

Thanks guys, it's great to be an inspiration, i'm touched :snif:

It's a VERY addictive thing, I happen to have about ten players here at the moment . Maybe if I clear out the storage room, i'll find even more . Luckily I have a place to store them... If a nice bargain comes along, most of the times I can't resist it! I think it will be a long time before this diminishes. B.T.W., anyone interested in a heavily modded CD63-KI??

Funny thing you mention that Pete, coz at the moment i'm helping a collegue to mod a CD57, and he can solder but knows little about electronic components. I can't wait to see the smile on his face when he hears the player for the first time. Then he has created a unique thing himself. I think that's also the main thing that drives people to modify things, to put your own stamp on it.

I don't know if we're approaching a record yet. Would be nice to have a special listing on the forum .

Ray
