The solder is much duller to look at and it annoys me

It cools and sets much quicker than the lead.

Also C605 etc with the inductor, I remember you said you shortened out the inductor and changed the cap for nearly half value, is this correct?
Hm. It's better for our health of course, but more difficult for us DIY'ers. I didn't have to handsolder with it yet, but I know the melting temperature is higher. I still have enough 'old-style' in stock.

Yes, the idea with C605/606 is to make them smaller to change the filter slope to Bessel. It has a more linear group-delay time. The inductor forms a series resonant circuit, so technically you have to retune it. But in the CD67 they omitted it, so I guess you can short it if you like. The full story is here.

Immediately after the mod I found the highs sounded more relaxed, less stressed. I experimented a bit and made the cap a little bigger, 560pF.

Hi.

I've just looked on Ebay. There is loads of lead alloy solder listed!!! and at reasonable prices.

Andy


PS. Don't knock car boot sales - my best bargain to date has to be a mint Counterpoint SA-7 preamp - 100% legit and with all documents - for 50 !!! The seller was in a RR and had just upgraded to KRELL .

Well, maybe not to *remember* it, but it can still be seen here and there in house wiring...
