A week? I just listen to mine now! Gotta be nine months or something...

Tempted as I am to put all my music (as FLAC files) on an NAS server (QNAP probably) feeding a Squeezebox over wi-fi, plugged into a nice DAC... which I'd probably make... CDs are so yesterday...

I know this seems a bit off topic, but can you explain your text please ? I am always interested in new tech

FLAC files (what are these?)

NAS server (QNAP probably) (Hard disk server ?)

Squeezebox over wi-fi (Is wi-fi speedy enough to transmit real time music ?)

so yesterday ( your tech is so much better ?)

Regards

Ricardo

Default Über Sound

After some trouble fitting the Spower rig near the opamps, I am now rewarded with a much better detail and transient response.

Strings are now believable and female voice is almost perfect.

Very nice! Very tidy too.

Good to see it's sounding good (if that makes sense).

I have had a productive day also. Fitted two extra 5v sregs. So now have them on decoder, hf & servo analog rails. Going to add some dedicated psu's now.

Can't get over how much better than my cd67 this '63 sounds, with far fewer psu's too!

I may post a pic when I've tidied it up a bit and added some psu's.

Lee.

edit: gotta keep up with Simon's. Can't have him bringing his here and being beaten in my own home!

LOL, more regs going in soon my good man. And this morning I fitted some wires, sockets and bypass caps (1u and 220n) to my new clock psus.

No burn marks!

Hmmm, you may be better off without the bypass caps, imo.

I'm gonna wait til my Mundorfs arrive before building most of the psu's I think.

If anyone has any ideas where I can mount a rather large 30va toroid for my discrete stage, please tell me!

Lee.

Hi Lee.

Mine is inside but you can always hang it on the outside (I love the hanging in the back cool look)...

By the way, after beeing connected all night, the noises disappeared and the sound is beautifull.... Now I even hear people speaking in the back stage of Keith Jarret.

I now believe the next mod will be the discrete output...

Hehe. Yes, but where? lol.

I think it'll go external in its own small enclosure, but with the rectifier and smoothing cap inside the player. Anyone have any reasons this is a bad idea? Why do manufacturers always rectify in the external case?

Regards, Lee.

Yes, for an analogue psu, but this is for clocks. It just looks cool.

It could be to keep the rectification noise / RFI away from the critical circuits.
