Yes there is also the two -4V v refs that take the supply from the -5V L/R digital so 8 regs maybe ideal but not yet lol.

It is a very different dac to the 63 one. And I'm looking forward to getting it all working to a proper level.

Tests with the discrete first and then transformer fitment.

CD72 cool loads to do there, I had a CD94 last year for repair and it had loads of voltage rails and chips. Sounded quite nice for its age, loads of bass weight.

It sounded amazing. I want one, but clocked and with some new caps.

And so is the CD950 from Philips.

Yes, 8 regs, that's the number.

I have a 11M Flea here, so I think it must be the next move, getting that into the CD950.

Hi guys!

Hope you're well and I'm here to post some very simple things I've done to keep my CD53 "up to date and neat" for now.
• Gold plated RCAs, look gorgeous, don't think it makes any difference but at least my CableTalk Brodcast3 fits thighter. Should bring what instead the OEM?
• More damping at the dead end of tray, a bit more damping is nice but I have to press and flatten it a bit for it's touching the frame and rattles annoyingly when the tray moves.
• One sheild on the DAC's top, one one the TX, both made from sheild used for RF noise one an industrial cards/PSU, under is plastic film and outer a layer if copper. Brings what beside the fact I've used unused material that should be not put to trash?
• Maybe the main upgrade is Vibrapod feet, my furniture is simple and does dance with music. I'm waiting for some more for my Integrated wich slants on the TX side with OEM feet

Plugged all back, some hours later put a first CD and... find nothing new, maybe a bit harsh at the very begining (BG and friends not fully "ready"?). Finally not, almost nothing but a bit more focused on bass, wich are not at their highs withe the Quad 11L... anyway, Im' not fully used to the "Blu-Tacked" Quad now

So that's it, what I should I have been waiting for with these upgrades?

Hi Matthieu,

I found a little more detail and a slighter smoother sound from using the better RCAs. My old ones were quite worn and old, however.

The other mods weren't likely to do much, other than the feet, which won't neccessarily be a good change.

Hi Matthieu

Gold plated RCA´s with "real" teflon insulation really can make a difference but it only gets perceivable after some time. Cables and RCA´s must settle.

I think you should add some TX to your machine.... 1 TX for servo sregs and 1 TX for analog opamps.... That makes a really big difference.

Almost on the 10.000

Ricardo
