Hi Everyone

Great thread found it yesterday lots of good stuff. So just when I though is was safe to put the lid back on my CD63.
I have had my Cd63 since 93 done many mods to it from the TNT site and others.
Well I guess I am going to dive back into it and remove the HDAM. I was using the unit as a transport but I have sold my DAC I never went for the clock card because I was using a DAC but am thinking of doing it Check this link to this clock card and tell what you think http://www.hagtech.com/hagclock.html I am going to order some OPA627 and some Browndog PCB's I have the 2604's in there now can't wait to remove the HDAM to see what it dose It;s going to take a few weeks to do all this because I am trying to finish up the speakers I am building it going to be a few more weeks.


Thank Dave

Hi Brent,

The OFC thing is nice, but it's one of those "HDAM marketing" things .
You don't really expect a few mm of OFC wire to make a difference when there's common copper tracks all over the PCB? And "minimum distortion" ? An electrolytic is a nasty thing anyway. Especially if you put signal through it . Luckily we are using them for PSU decoupling only...

This Starget series (ROD) doesn't seem to appear on Elna's website. Did you manage to get the datasheet for these Stargets? Could you post it / send me a copy?

Hi Adam,

Don't worry, your player will sound good if you put the Stargets in, they are much better compared to the standard ones that are in there. You can use them for C611...614. For C651...654 you don't need replacements, it is better to bypass the HDAM circuit. Cheap mod eh? But around the digital circuits I would recommend a cap with a known low ESR.

Regards,

Ray.

Im looking at getting some rubycon caps to use instead of the stargets, as i have been reading good things about them, plus they are cheaper than the stargets.
I'm trying to compile my list of caps to order tonight, but its effort trying to remember all the ones to order. Il get there eventually, but might even change to the FC's to use around the mains supply and tranny. Soo many choices, soo little time.

Il get pics up when im done.

With regard to C651-654, would they be useless when i bypass the HDAM, so there would be no need to spend money on upgrading them?

Hi Ad,

Yes, you're right, those parts lists can get pretty long...
That's the main reason I made my mods lists, to keep track of things
Rubycons are very nice, especially the ZA/ZL(H) series. They have very low impedance. Where are you going to order your stuff, RS?

Indeed, C651...654 are no longer used when HDAM is bypassed. No need spending $$$ on them

Regards,

Ray.
