You are ready to loose some music details in order to have more overall music sounds like music?
The details are also part of music to me.

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.

Now your done it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Listen to the Music

Really what next.............

allan

I guess at my age I barely have time to listen, much less tweak..

And I will tweak anything from lawnmowers to drills to amps..

I was just wonderign how good a modded 63 sounded compared to a good outboard dac.. someday I'll get around to doing my own..
once I build my premap and crossover.


Now I'm timed limited to just modding stuff and learning..and listening!!

Oh yea and that air bearing tone arm still sitting on my bench..

The simple answer is "the sky's the limit" if you're prepared to spend money and time on it.

To contrast with your comparison between CD63 and a cheap SACD player, I will tell of my experience here.

I listened to Dark Side of the Moon (dual layer) SACD on a cheap Pioneer universal player. The sound was relaxed and spacious, detail was reasonable, vocals were pleasant. This was the SACD layer.

Then I played it (CD layer) on my very modded CD63. Immediately obvious was the sheer impact and dynamics available: gobsmacking after the now lacklustre SACD player sound. Instruments are tangible and potent, with glorious texture and real body. Interestingly, even with all these mods, the sound was not as relaxed as the SACD layer on the cheap player. But the gutsy, dynamic and richly detailed sound is nothing at all like what the DVD player could manage, even playing the "super" format.

The slight lack of absolute refinement appears to be fixable, as I have heard the most highly modded CD63 round here and with that one you've comparing it to real life, not other CD players. You'd be laughing if you had an outboard DAC like that (maybe they exist, I don't know!).

Hi. I suppose it depends on the dac.

I have a mate who owns tons of hi-fi. He let me take my modded 63ki round and play through his lovely old meridian monoblocks and 15" tannoy monitor golds. We swapped out a Kenwood transport and about a grands worth of Meridian dac. My 63 came out well on top. Better detail, bass and everything. Less "digital". My mate agreed with me.

I was very happy to say the least. He now wants me to mod one for him!

Lee.
