Oh yeah, also, established wisdom is that the DOS needs high quality regulators and big VA PSUs to sound its best. I just have four 7X12 regs fed by my existing supply (30VA?) with 22,000uF smoothers. Even as it is, it's definitely better on balance, both in terms of detail and musical enjoyment. I haven't had the hairs stand up on the back of my neck yet though.

One thing you can do if you have itchy fingers, Alan, is build one anyway and try it. It's possible to hook it up without removing the old output stage.

Cool pics! Those are two impressive looking players. One thing that jumps out to me about the discrete op-amp solution is that it looks like it must involve almost four times the component count of the DOS.

I found discrete Opamps sound better than metal CAN 49720HA but they need to have very low noise and stable voltage regulators to bring out their wonderful performances. I use +/- 15V to drive them.

Hi guys, my player is going wild and I can't seem to find the problem. When I switch it on the disk is spinning very fast and the sledge is going crazy. The display doesn't light up. Any idea's what it could be?

Before this I replaced c813 and c814 with a Pan FC 4700-25v so I can put in de new Tx later. Maybe something went wrong when I switch them.

tnks!

regards,
Bart

Bart, check your voltages. Is the main 5v reg working?

Check if the +/- of Caps C813 and 814 are correctly fitted. It seems you have lost the 5V supply to the circuits.
