Default Yamaha CDX-1050 DAC

Hi,
I try to analyze this circuit but I have difficulty to understand. Somebody can help me because this cd player are in my opinion a good transport but the DAC and output circuit is very bad. Maxpou

Looks like some kind of semi-discrete version of a Panasonic MASH converter. Looks like it would sound terrible, no matter how much it was upgraded.

can i bypass the ic16 and 17 (NAND gate). Why the master clock is connected to pin 1 and 2 of ic 15 after connected to pin 13 for output to pin 12, it's for jitter? And enters to pin 11, out pin10, in pin 5 and out pin pin6 to the NAND gate. I don't understand this circuit. thank you! Maxpou

It looks to me like the NAND gates are performing as part of the actual d/a conversion, which is why I described it as a semi-discrete sort of mash circuit. But without specific data on the dac chip driving them, I can't really be sure. It looks to me like it has not a prayer of sounding great, no matter what you did to it, short of scrapping the whole dac section & building an entirely new one. Easier to plug it into an external dac unit, though, I think.;-)
