Yep, I agree.

A properly sorted servo section brings much better bass and a more cohesive relaxing and realistic sound. More "analogue".

You can do the 63 without regulating and/or with regulating the servo driver psu, of course regualiting improves further. The one thing that needs sorting regardless is the psu. Disconnecting the tx for the +/- 10V is required and fit in the player a 2x 12V 30va - 50va tx to supply these rails. It makes a massive improvement. You can then run the regs at +/- 12V dc

I have a dedicated psu for the servo chip with local sregs and a clock but i did not regulate the drivers. I had a misfortune while doing it and blew one of the driver opamps so I decided to leave them alone... The pcb is quite damaged in that place. I am sorry I did not know better in those days

I will keep it in mind when I get another cd53 to work on.

I've already tried a couple stereo system remotes though. Doesn't work...
Stabby, If you still want that cd63 remote, message me your address and i'll put it in the post. I don't want anything for it. I never use them. I send the wife to change tracks!

Think I may have bitten off more than I can chew guys! Still cant seem to get the unit to power up at all, also the solder I bought through eBay doesn't go shiny after use, its more like a dull silver...its supposed to be multicore branded 4% silver.

Tried the mains input but no luck. Just to check the neutral (blue) should be soldered to cold and the live (brown) should be soldered to hot?

Running out of ideas and thinking that this might not have been such a good idea after all!
