Smile Hello from Southern England

Hi all,

Like so many others I've been lurking picking up tips for some time now.

I don't get too much time to indulge my hobby; the pressures of work & three children keep me on my toes.

My DIY'ing career began back in the early 80's when I decided the Thorens TD-160 I owned at the time just didn't do it for me. Initially I began by building a new platter which was a glass and aluminium laminated affair, but ended up ditching everything except the motor from the Thorens.

Fast forward to now. I'm currently modding a Marantz CD-63 and planning to look at some Meridian 100 series amps which are about to be temporarily replaced with a Naim 62/140 combination.

I do wonder what I used to do before I discovered these forums!

Regards
Dave

Welcome to the forum. Is that the early, top-loading CD63, or the mkII front loader? What are you doing to it?

Thanks for the welcome.

It's the mkII. In the fullness of time it will recieve ALW super regs, a new clock and some damping for the enclosure.

I've also toyed with the idea of running a completely seperate PSU.

My modding plans were thrown into disarray recently because I was given a TEAC VRDS-10 which currently resides in my system.

Ah ha. I tried the ALW mods around the clock (cutting tracks and so forth) on two players. On the first one, I didn't have any 10pF silvered mica, so I used a paralleled pair of 5pF polystyrene instead. For the second player, I ordered 10pF silvered mica. The one with the polystyrene sounds better...
