I have thought of adding cd text. The cd6000 would probs be the donor unit as it has the added cd text pcb and matrix tube. I have also thought of re-casing and making it a top loader but then I also like the wolf in sheeps clothing side of things.

I have a few more psu updates to do on mine first

new op-amps woopie! On the subject of esthetics (Poynton) I have often thought about this. I hate the look of my 67'. I was thinking along the lines of removing the face plate along with the buttons and their circuitry, and keeping only the display, the on-off button and remote sensor. It would mean I guess replacing it with either a wooden one or creating a new metal one, since I assume no cast off from another machine would fit. Neither option is within my capabilities since I guess removing the circuits for the buttons is not as simple to do as to say... I am thinking along the lines of making a nice hardwood case, something like in the new classic-look line from Luxman. That's do-able even if it does mean keeping the wretched black-on-black front.

At this point, I'd like to remain quiet for fear that i don't share the same sense of humour as some!!

The overall VA of the transformers should go up from 272VA to approx 425VA with the next tweaks

Which is nice

"It" really should be called a "RaySonic" in honour of our founder!
