I'll do a search on that one. It's the last mod I want to do on the player ... but I don't know if I want to make it a very expensive one since the player only cost me 80 euros.

Any thoughts on the opamps ?

In that case you might want to consider a cheaper clock, but I'm sure it will be lower in performance.

I use 2 x OPA627 in my CD player and love them (expensive though). I use LM4562 in my preamp and love those, becuase they are so neutral sounding. Others report these chips work well in the CD63/7 too. They will be your best bet.

Well.... I wouldn't be too sure of that. Did you try The Flea yet? Probably the best bang for the buck too .

I'm not sure either Ray, I just thought a more complex design with expensive parts would be ideal here. I would love for somebody to compare some.

Mine is not actually a Superclock by the way, it's a lowly "DVC-1 Masterclock", which cost me 100 new from Audiocom about 5 years ago. It's lived in two CD players and has served me well! But it will be changed soon...

If the Flea is cheap enough I may actually compare the two products and just sell the inferior one.

I've been thinking what I could do to my player and decided to bin the superclock 2b and upgrade to the superclock 3.
It will be interesting to hear how much difference there is.

Any of the 'superclocks' is better than the standard and would be a noticable improvement.

I can verify, for anyone interested, that Brent's CD63 mods do work rather well! Shown in extended listening accompanied by fine wines, brandies, whiskey, port and sherry. A good host who dispensed the wife when she tried to begin music-disrupting conversation.

Some very clear vocals and fantastic detail, and a defined bottom end entirely dependent on the recording.

Only problem is feeling ropey today!
