I know. I also know that kind of cash is better spent elsewhere.
I have spent a fortune on my rack to eliminate vibration problems, there is bitumen on the mech and traverse + the tray and front cover is filled with hot glue. All adding mass.

Now I am happy....

After reading your comments I am now aware of the extension of Brent´s work. (Would apreciate to listen to it but I am far away).

Now for my part, just finished the sregs instalation on the servo, feeded by a dedicated psu and linked to the star gnd.

Bass boost is evident but not only in terms of quantity.... What a tight bass... and everything seems so integrated... über


Now I really need that clock...!!!!

Ricardo

Excellent news Ricardo.

It is a very worth while upgrade. I also recommend never turning the cd player off (unless you are modding). After approx 3-5 days the components settle down and it becomes so much better in every department.

A lot of that has to do with the Black Gates, they're designed to have a constant current running. The more BG's you have, the more noticeable this gets.

My new output caps have burned in nicely now - sounding soo natural and lifelike. Nothing really grabs you, but when you concentrate on a certain sound or area, you realise just how damn good it is.

Lee.

Excellent, now all you need is the Mundorfs, I know someone who can get them a bit cheaper

I'll report back on the FK on the discrete after the weekends listening with a weeks burn in.

Interesting point about the time to stabilise the caps; it's one of the three major reasons I gave up on CD63 mods. All those electrolytics make soakage and leakage currents a real headache from a sound quality, consistency and tune-carrying POV (and I can't abide 'long warm up' scenarios. It's a band-aid.)

(I moved to building thing where I could control impedances and decoupling paths, and use film cap instead to the exclusion of almost all electrolytics. I'm not going back.)

Different strokes for different folks - that what keeps this silly hobby interesting!

Brent, my FK's seemed to even out a bit after a week or two, they were really in yer face at first.

Martin, any chance you could point us in the general direction of some pages about what you've moved over to? Tbh, I'm astounded by my players sound so far & I agree elco's are not good for sound. If there's even more to get from cd, that would be awesome.

Regards, Lee.

These FKs so far have not been in my face at all, infact they are similar to the std black gate with a slightly tighter bass and a little more treble detail.

What regs do you have on the discrete?

Default Servo Sregs + Star GND

The wonderfull thing about the BG is that you can hear the sound opening up with time and even while playing.
