I have read many, many pages of this very long thread. I have carried out most of the mods suggested. What is not clear to me is insert wire jumper at R619/620".

It seems from the pictures I have seen that most have taken a wire from a point on the board to the L & R phono's. However, again from the pics I have seen there appears to be a wire from the area of U210/U214, to the space left by the removal of caps
C657/C656.

Should I remove C655 - C658 and add the links from U210 to C657 and from U214 to C656 (+ side) ?

Rob.

Hi Rob,

R619 and R620 are resistors/jumpers that can be inserted to bypass the HDAM circuit, while keeping the rest of the player's circuitry intact. If you are planning to bypass the output caps as well, you can use a more direct jumper wire from U210/214 (the opamp outputs) to the output sockets. If you take a look at the schematic, you'll see that the + of C657 and C658 runs to the outputs, so they can be used to connect the other side of the jumper if you remove the caps.

Regards,

Ray

Sadly I have a very distorted sound on both channels

I suspect that I might still have some of the HDAM in circuit?

I have removed the following :-

1. Muting Transistors (linked the pads together)
2. R 651 - 654.
3. R619/620
4. R617/618
5. C655 - 658
6. RH23/24
7.Connected links between 0210 and QN08 (one of the pads left after removal) and the other to 0214 and QN07. I connected to the spare pads as above as I could not get continuity when testing between C657 and C658 and the phono sockets?

Hi Rob,

That's no surprise ;-) Is the sound also very low in volume?

1. you shouldn't link the pads together, the muting transistors short the signal to GND you see. And that's just what you don't want.
2. R651...654 removed is o.k.
3. R619/620 removed is o.k.
4. R617/618 removed is o.k. but not really needed
5. C655...658 removed is o.k.
6. RH23/24 removed is o.k. but not really needed
7. remove U210 and U214.

Now insert links between:

- one pad of U210 (the one closest to Q606) and + of C658
- one pad of U214 (the one closest to Q605) and + of C657

Now you should measure around 200 ohms between pin 7 (the opamp outputs) of Q605/606 and the output sockets. This is because R657...R660 are still in the circuit. If you'd like to tweak this further, you can replace R657 and R658 by a jumper.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Ray

Ray, thank you very much for your reply. It seems I haven't done any damage!
It will probably be tomorrow before I can rectify the error.

Regards

Rob.

Managed to get time to correct it this evening. I have sweet music. I have only listened through a very flaky C-Moy (dodgy grd connection), but it all works. Thanks for your help.

Rob.

Why not got the whole hog and get a decent sized 12v TX. Bridge and smoothers and you'll have a proper PSU.
Replaced regulators with closely matched ones the voltages difference is
0.07V Will try for a while before considering a TX

Some tracks I play seem to skip or the Singer seems to hasten
Why? Laser on the last leg?
Thanks for enlightening

Me again! Strange goings on. I thought I had both channels working last night. However the left was silent this evening (could have been the dodgy grd on the headphone amp and I thought it sounded a bit mono). On attaching the L phono lead directly to U210 I got sound. It does not seem to matter that the grd is not connected. However when I attach the link directly from U214 to the phono socket (L) I get no sound (the link was originally attached between U214 and 657)

Is this a grd issue?
