    Did you mention the email? Ask them when the sale ends? I just got that email last Thursday.

    I'm still waiting for my email order confirmation. That would be something if you get 50% off the sale price - lol :p

    The website has been changed to reflect the 50% off of the regular price of $39.95.

    Just waiting on my order confirmation now.

    I guess my question to Fred is, is there anything else parts wise we need for this mod? If I'm going to order the regulators I'd like to order everything at once to save on shipping if other parts are needed.

    I'm a little disappointed no one has gotten back to me from Parts ConneXion. The first time I bought something from them they were on top of it and got me a confirmation within hours and it shipped very quickly. The second time they never confirmed my shipping and it took a little longer. This time I just need them to send me the total so I can pay them.

    Hopefully by tomorrow. I'm sure they are a little behind because if the Canadian holiday yesterday, but I expected a confirmation of my order today.

    I'm not in a hurry to do the mod, but I want to make sure they don't exhaust their stock before I get a pair :D.

    Unless the app. note included with the regs suggest a local bypass cap be used ,then no parts should be required.
    (The same .1uf Panny stacked film's used near the opamp's would work if needed).The parts I listed previously will need to be removed and just in case I would suggest that they be kept and labeled until your certain the new regs are working correctly.

    Also as I mentioned to Goerge in a previous post you should have a DMM handy to do basic voltage measurements.The reg's have a pot that will likely require some tweaking to set them to the correct voltage.

    I think Gen II's are a good choice. That was my 2nd choice based simply on $$$ and shipping. At PCX I could combine shipping of the Multicaps w/the other PS caps I needed.

    I doubt in the position they are used in anyone would be able to hear a difference between Gen I or II. But good choice to both on Sonicaps.

    I sent PCX an email asking when I could expect my final invoice. Stephanie said they are extremely busy because of the sale and they were invoicing as quickly as possible.

    Still no confirmation e-mail about them being in stock and the final sales price. Really starting to get annoyed. I sent them an order on Monday!!! This is starting to get ridiculous, I don;t care how much you have on sale they can't have that many orders to respond to.

    That was fast. I just emailed her and she got back to me with a total in less than 2 minutes. :D

    George or anyone else who had done the full mod, have you noticed a lot more bass? It's almost as if in my rig there is too much bass as in it tends to be a little more colored.

    Default re base

    With both channels operating and about 10 hours of play so far here are my observations
    1) detail isn't that different than the CD source direct output so far... detail equaling do you know the instrument is there or not... makes me feel better about the $1700 price tag 10 years ago
    2) whats greatly better is color and weight. Best simile I can give is take 2 copys of a pencil sketch, have a master color 1 in with watercolor and the other with oils... the oil will always be richer and more engaging. What was passive or even iritating before now pops out and is engaging. Sounds have a weight when they are percussive, that thump in your chest
    3) low (below 45hz) base shows signs of base doubling but with MG1B's I can't really tell if its the speaker pushing base beyond its limit up an octave in harmonics or if its actually the DAC... hopefully the MG 1.7's due this week will show its not.

    Wondering if perhaps the filter capacitor/inductor should have stayed in to cut out sub 30 hz/over 22khz harmonics...

    I'm not sure which cap you are refering to but the inductor would be working above the audio band not in the low bass.IMO It being in series with the output has the potential to affect SQ in a negative way and it really doesn't need to be there.In fact in the dozens of schematics I have seen of DAC's and CD players ,I have never seen any other design with them in the analog signal path.


    btw.Did you get your 600 hum free and working with the OPA627's?
