Cheers

A guy who heard it on the Saturday rang me Monday afternoon (must have grabbed one of my fliers) to tell me how good it sounded LOL

Cool action Brent!

Your über-modded player wipes the floor . This nicely illustrates what these players are capable of. What output stage is in there, Bursons?

BTW, did you see my C2 review?

Now these are very good news

I recently atended the Audio Fair in Estoril and found myself puzzled because I only liked the mega€ systems.

Even the AR with the little puppyes did not excite me.... I wonder if it has something to do with the kind of sound I am used today at home

And my CDP is only slightly better than stock compared to yours.

Hi Ray

Oh I missed that post about the C2. Thank you very much

My output is the original DOS using Fets but with 0.1% resistors , Silver Mica caps, uprated coils in filter, BG FK , 4x SPower regs and Mundorf Silver/Gold for output.

371 standard player_-65dB__________-65dB
DOS______________-68dB__________-55dB
CFP______________-68dB__________-60dB

So some 5dB better at 3kHz. Does this allign with the theory ???
Hi Guido,

Nice results! Seems fine to me, less third harmonic is good, because that one sounds less pleasant to the human ear. Distortion goes from 0,18% to 0,10%, which seems marginal, but it has almost halved. This is what i've found during the simulations also: distortion is already low, but with CFP it's about half the value.

I'm working on mine at the moment, still waiting for some parts. But most important is that it sounds very good! We all know that this can not always be captured with measuring equipment...
