Default Marantz CD-7 audio output mod.

Hi All,
Having succesfully modified the output of my denon 2900 with two Mundorf Supreme Silver/oil 1F's I am willing to try to mod the output of my Marantz CD-7 also.

The cd-7 already has a Tent XO2 with XO supply, but I love what the cap change on the denon did, so I am willing to try it on the cd-7.

Included are the schematics of the parts concerned with modding the output of the CD-7.
From the HDAM (Marantz opamps) the signal, we take left channel as a guide, passes through R718 and then through the Elna's I want to replace, through relay L702 and then straight to the XLR connector.

I can not remove the caps and replace them with a wire, as I measured 0,5volt DC over these caps. So they definitely serve a purpose as to remove the dc component.

I was handed a formula to calculate the actual value needed for the replace cap, dictated by the lower cutt-of freq needed (in the order of 5 Hz) and the input impedance of the amplifier connected.

For the denon 2900 I calculated that 1F would suffice due to the extreem high impedance of my Electrocompaniet ECI-4 of 330 Kohm.

Can I do the same for my xlr connected CD-7 to the same amp, or should I be concerned with the dc component of 0,5 volt over the two 220F caps? Will a 1F (Mundorf Supreme Silver/oil) as a replacement be able to also remove this dc component? Or will any cap remove this component? Or is there a formula for which cap value removes what dc component?

Thanks a lot!!

Yes.

Yes.Some have more leakage than others. Electrolytics are the worst for this purpose ( in general ).

No.



Please do not forget R720 in your calculations for the correct value for the capacitor.

f=1/(2xPixRxC). This is the -3dB point. So 100k parallel with the amps 330k = 76,7 kOhm

1/ ( 2 x 3,14 x 76.000 x 1exp10-6 ) = 2 Herz

hi, D.A.R.R.Y.L.

could you share me the schematic and PCB layout papers of CD7?

thanks a lot.my email box is jmxg007@tom.com

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your advise Jean Paul!

It is 6mb in size, can your mailbox handle this?

Jean Paul,

is there any danger in changing the output with regards to killing a HDAM?
