About my english, how that can be? The ONLY place I use it is here, and I've never been in UK or anywhere I could have. I may talk to Sarko's advisors to let kids learn on audio forums then!

Simon and Alan, maybe I'm wrong but seems the XO is still here?

Well you must be improving by inverse osmosis! The poor 63' with the Vdac is a great improvement without it. It's quite alright but still rather mechanical and rough in comparison. I am relieved! I guess my mail to you Simon is floating somewhere on the net. I will just have to take better pictures.
By the way, does anyone know a reliable address either in the states or UK to upgrade an aging AudibleIllusions Preamp. My friend here has had mine for 20years and aside for a tube change, has done nothing to it. We agree it's about time! I was thinking along the lines of better caps and resistors at the very least. He wants to take the phono circuit out too. Doesn't want to spend a lot of money. It's a very simple and good pre. and shouldn't be hard to do.

Still difficulties with the driver regs, it's not a mod for beginners apparently. I tried to reverse 2 of them so they would be in same line as the pictures from Brent's cdp. That didn't work. The transport went mental! So I got all the regs out. Nothing. I thought I fried the player!!

After some poking around with the soldering iron it played again! What a releave!!! And it sounds much better than with the regs! (except for the bass) Promised myself never to do any mods again if I got it working again. But that was an hour ago

Now I'd like to try the simple driver regs mod. I found this picture, but I couldn't find a complete instruction. Can anyone help me how do I install the 7808/7908 and where? I wanna make sure I do it right this time... I kind of mis the nice bass.

Get a bog standard 5V reg on the processor It removes a lot of the mush from the main reg.
