I would recommend trimming the 0.18uF (or 180nF) down in value and aim for the flattest response at 20KHz. You might find that with 0.18uF it will be down a negligible 0.25dB, hardly a bad result, but some like 0.17uF or 170nF combination of parallel caps, will tweak the circuit.

But just try it with 0.18uF to get you started and if you like what it does, then tweak it.

The 47uH coils, we used some that was rated at 3A, so saturation is not going to be a problem.

We also unwrapped the wire and much less than a metre, we remade them with better wire, so that can also be a later tweak, but the coils did work standard quite well.

OK, up to you to try it. Cheers, Joe.

Further to my previous post, using passive is a good way to go, especially
if you have low DAC -> IV impedances, the inductors can be relatively small.

I have made many of these both 2nd and 3rd order.

The crucial part is the inductor, specifically core material. You will find that
the 47uH spec can actually be only over a limited BW and that can be quite a
bit higher than 20kHz. Remember that these inductors are mainly used for
mains RF filtering applications.

Obviously the best inductor is an air core one but then the DCR will go up
as you need more turns. It will also most likely need shielding.

This brings back memories. I've got boxes of inductors / coils / transformers
etc that were used for I-V applications.

Cool LPS board for OPPO UDP-203

I just finished developing the LPS board for UDP-203.
It is working nicely , perfectly replaced the orig swtching ps.
I use a Nuvotem 35VA onboard trans, opamp + mos reg circuit.
This LPS is suppling a DC12V to the main board only. No power to the DAC board, which I will never use.

Nice design.
I would like to point out that in case of not using (powering) the DAC board (203), the flat cable in between main board and audio board it should be disconnected, preventing so possible randomly functional issues (sections of audio board partially powered through the flat cable).

Thanks for Coris's recommendation.
I will immediatelly remove the flat cable

Looks neat. I have a question, how much more heat does it produce and also, can you feel the case being warmer?

Hi Terry

Sorry, I was overseas and didn't spot your post, but right on.

Chokes are making a comeback, like also in RIAA EQ.

Cheers, Joe

Yes, it produced more heat than the orig PS. touching the heatsink, I think it is about 50"c. The case is warm if I enclose the conver and play few hours.

Hello,

I have got two questions:

1.)
I do own an OPPO 203.

I consinder changing the originally built in power supply against a good linear ps, for example the "clones audio PSUPD".
Would that be a step forward in overall quality (sound? picture?).
Are there alternative power supplies you might suggest?

As I am no technician, I need a "plug & play" power supply, where I just will have to exchange the complete pcb.

At present I use the 203 via HDMI-out in combination with a NAD M51 DAC.

2.)
How good is the "bigger" 205 concerning sound quality as a standalone CD/SACD-player compared to the top-high-end-players from Accuphase, McIntosh, Luxman or the great YAMAHA CD-S3000?

Greetings from Bavaria,
Alexander

Waveform measurement results for the newly developed Femto clock.



The upper part shows the original waveform as it is. It shows the appearance of sine wave and you can see that the jitter is very high. (The bar graph shows the distribution and size of the jitter)

On the other hand, after mounting the Femto clock, it shows a perfect waveform with almost exact square appearance and little jitter.

This femto clock has a frequency accuracy of about 0.1 PPM, but the waveform looks very accurate.

On the other hand, OCXO (Oven ctrystal clcok) waveforms are not as good as Femto clock, but they have excellent frequency accuracy of 0.001 PPM.

In other words, OCXO is to pursue frequency accuracy while Femto clock that pursues the accuracy of waveform in clock.



I compared the these two approches in respect of picture quality and sound quality. It is difficult to judge the difference in picture quality at this point of the femto clock of about 10 days burn in tiimes.



My video system consits with 110-inch Stewart Cima screen and a 3- DLP projector, the RUNCO LS-12D.



Both are wonderful. However, on the audio side, the Femto clock seems seems ti be better. It is felt especially in the bass .

Each clock buffers are installed to the spot of original clock to eliminate the effect of wiring form Femto clock ( hiden in PCBs )
