Is that still classed as a PM66

Nice work though. What are the main details of this mate?

It says PM66 on the front.

It's probably still got as many original parts as your CD player!




Seriously, though. It's a couple of ZAppulse modules and sidewinder PSU (all from LC audio) hooked up to a 450va toroid. It should be putting out about 200w per channel.

When I had my CD63 KI modded I decided I needed some more amplifier to do it justice and I wanted to keep the matching look in the rack!

Regards

Pete

Looks very nice, is that class D amplification?

How does it compare to the unmodded Marantz amp??

Hi SImon,

Yes, it's Class D.

Compared to the PM66 it's a lot more detailed. There were a few changes to the CD player around the same time so a bit of the improvement may be down to that. Basically there just seems to be more of everything.

Default Pot value

Hi Guys,

does anybody know the pot value. A friend is asking me to replace it for him. He does not live close by and if I can buy the pot before laying my hands on the amp I can save quite a bit of time.

Any help appreciated.
TIA

Best
Giulio

Well it's been a while since I modded my amp as i've been working on mains cables and filters.

Yesterday whilst wondering about a bigger VA tx the penny dropped and I remembered I had a spare KI tx.

Here is the result....
