Nice one Simon.
It was trying to get a discrete output going on my CD63 that was the final death nail for it (thankfully though, no visit from Pontypandy FD, just a quick recycling session and a quiet memorial service). Glad your's is still working (and sounding great).

So this time I only did it with croc clips to help me rapidly find the fault. Not sure what it was.
LOL!

Cheers mate, there have been a few losses around here (one must raise a glass to those that failed to achieve greatness but instead ascended to the great electronic dustbin in the sky - souls escaping to the scent of capacitor steam and burning transistors.)

I think my fault was probably either a solder splash on the discrete pcb, or one of those pesky silver wires wasn't soldered properly. Nothing major. Hopefully I'll get it soldered back in tonight. Should sound even better then.

Glad I'm not the only one then.
My CD63 still lives as a donor to other projects (and obvious lessons learnt).

It will sound great soldered in situe.
You'll have to change your signature if it works well.

Cheers,
Phil

Got stereo sound out of my discrete board yesterday afternoon, but then had to head out for a birthday party. I've been listening all day today (croc clipped in). In a word: music!

LMAO - It appears to be missing the meat balls

Superb stuff

Brent

Yes yes, it's spaghetti! I will say once more: it's a test-setup. One that you can happily "test" for many hours! Had an old uni mate round yesterday, loving every minute. Apart from once or twice where the recording was very overcompressed (e.g. Ben Folds' - Rockin' the Suburbs album).

Sig changed!

You won't regret it. Very nice. On a par with feeding a dedicated clock its own nice power supply. The latter provides much detail and accuracy, this helps to turn those details into music.

Re-jig of power supplies next, and feed the servo chip from its own regs. I think I'm nearly done then!
