Default Separate TX questions

Hi there!
Is there any benefit if I use one of these (wich I've got):
A toroidal 2X(15V 0.5A),
A std 2x15V 3.2VA
A std 2X9V 3.2VA
(my 2X9V 2.5VA is used as my Flea's PSU).

Do you think they are a good idea to use somewhere, I mean get a real benefit of it and maybe unload the main TX and improve its behavior?
Maybe toroidal for opamps and regs close to the opamps?
Any use of others?

Thanks all!

Default AD8599 first impression

The initial feeling based on max 2 hours of "running them in" time is very different from the one the LM4562 gave.

This is a very "fast forward" chip. Right in you face. Martin, you'll like it !

It plays the bass hard, opposite the LM4562.

It's involving. It's dynamic. Dianne Reeves really do sings loud.

Whether it's neutral hey I don't mind. As long as I'm not bored and my foot is tapping, I'm listing.

More to come later.

Well gents,

I had a good look at the broken CD53 I bought off EBay, and found that the 5V reg was broken. Music is emanating from the player as I type.

Now comes the arduous task of transferring all the goodies from the other PCB (CD63KI) to the new one. In addition, I was going to look through the service manual and where it defines a difference between 53 and 63KI parts, to replace those as well.

Also, for the transformer CD63KI 240V replacing CD53 120V, I was going to wire it to the new PCB identically to the way it is now. Will I blow something up using this method? Are all the circuits identical?

I was hoping for these and any other comments to warn me of any pitfalls that will cause me to go without good music for a longer period of time.

Thanks,

Simon (Oz)

P.S. Since killing my old PCB (or at least beyond repair for my meagre skills), I plugged my Pioneer 626 DVD player into the audio system to play music and listened to it ONCE!! I could not handle the lack of space and the sterile sound compared to my modded 63KI.

Thanks to the link to the "laser store" Brent. Fast friendly service.
Now if I don't screw it up replacing the unit...

For those new AD, beside de "behavior", the background noise (silence) and detail level is the same?

And about my Toroidal TX 2x 15V, any good use of it?
Does it makes sense to wire it instead of the OEM 12V supply (I mean instead of the OEM TX pins), put a 7815/7915 instead of the 7x12; and then put Raygulator or other super regs just at opamps?
Without split 5v rails, without 5V super regs, without BG at opamps, does it make sense?

Don't know and don't care.



My approach is perhaps a little different. I'm listing to the flow, the rhythmic, the pace, the timing, the "liveness", the emotion, you might call it the music.
