Has anyone made a Cliffs Notes version of this thread? Reading well over 400 pages is a pretty big commitment!

BTW, was the KI ever sold in North America? Been looking for one for a while and have found none on this side of the pond.

You could start around here.

Well, early in I found this list of to do's. Is it still a pretty good way to go about it?


1) Output caps bypassed - little bit more open sound and much better bass (and remove muting transistors)
2) Op amps - fit something like a OPA2134 first, you wont beleive the difference. You can at a later date change for 627 on browndogs etc to push the sound further.
3) Clock - I have that Audiocom clock from ebay - bargain. Dont worry about making a dedicated supply just yet unless you are confident.
4) HDAM bypass - a must do mod once the op amps are changed. 5) change all the resistors around the opamps to 0.1%tol types and all the blue se caps to silver mica.
6) Work on a way of seperating all the 5V rails to the DAC and the Decoder. You have Analogue 5v , digital 5v and clock ref 5V to these. Even using 3x cheap 7805 will give benefits (trust me I have tried it) Here is the extensive reg pcb work I have done http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/show...0&pagenumber=37 Dropping in a few good caps like Black Gates will help too.
7) You will need a seperate +12V supply for the clock. That reg package is very good from audiocom on ebay. I would buy them to suit what you are going to do though. The package they have is to replace the 2 12V regs and one 5V reg. If you are going to make seperate regs circuits for dac etc these wont be needed in these places.

1) Also for the opamp we have been trying the LME49720HA (LM4562HA) and it is much better than the standard LM4562NA. More dynamic, smoother mids and a better treble. They have the character of a DOS circuit.

7) And all other good reg retailers

Thanks for the clarification, Brent?
Do you still recommend doing them in the order listed?
Thanks

Just a quick 'un, to say that I heard those LM4562HA's and was very surprised by the difference over the standard 4562's.

A much more pleasant and cohesive sound. Noticeable improvements in the treble and bass in particular, with more air around the instruments.

Cheers, Lee.

I noticed this: BASS!

(the bass dynamics are also the main improvement you hear on certain music with the "DOS")
