Default CD63SE Modding work Completed !!

At last I have completed the modding work for my friend's CD63SE. Ray's 2 fleas are now installed.
The SQ is really really exceptional and my friend cannot believe his ears that an old CDP can have such GOOD performances.
My next project will be to add a muting relay to my own CD63KI (modded) similar to what I had done to my friend's 63SE.

Nice job

Maybe I should add some solder pads for those cans in the next board revision

Hi, I'm new on this forum. I am thinking of modding my old cd63 mkII signature player. I have already removed the muting transistors since they were starting to fail (crackle sound in left channel). Next I want to replace the weak RCA analogue socket. What do you guys recommend as replacement, Neutrik maybe? And what connection cable should I use from the socket to the PCB board?

Well, the 2 fleas are wonderful and they improved the SQ by a lot. Thank you Ray for producing the wonderful clocks. Yes, solder pads on the fleas to accommodate copper cover cans will save me from using double sided adhesive tapes. I believe these pads will also provide earthing connection as well.

Hi Stefanom.

I like my CMC RCAs and Kimber TCSS wire. The CMCs screw tightly to the case.

Me too The CD63SE that I have just completed the modding work used CMC RCAs They have locking nuts on the outside of the case which makes installation easier.

Default Muting Relay added to my CD63 MKII KI

I have just successfully installed a muting relay to my previously modded CD63 MK II KI and it works like a charm. You can see the relay at the left hand bottom corner of the picture. Now there is no more CRACKing noise when switching off the CDP
