  1. Audition Cambridge Audio cx range. Absolutely stunning for the money. I just got a CXA60 for $1000 and it is really great sounding amp. The CXA80 is around$1500. Both built in Wolfson Dacs.
  2. no need to replace, use a vacuum cleaner to suck it back out.
  3. Would be great if you could give us the name of the shop in Portugal as i need a new belt for my Sony cdp-308esd. having a few problems with my rubber belt being a bit tired. Even boiled it and then plunged it in cold water. It fixed it a bit but the tray still struggles to close sometimes without the help of a nudge. I am also aware that I am missing the little roller wheel, but I will check my parts bin when I get back to OZ to see if i have one there.
  4. They are definately Audax drivers I have some 8 inch version on my DIY build 210 htg2. paper cones with very nice sensitivity and response. The Audax 170htg2 were used by richter in the Wizard V2 and other models. I boughtthe V1 in 1989 and loved them but have moved on since then.
  5. I regret the day I sold my NFB 2.1, but the universe was playing a different tune back then and was in some trouble with the $$. Very tempted to get this as it would erase that poor decision.
  6. I would take it But I am overseas and the wife only has a Renault clio, so would be a bit of a challenge getting it into that little car.
  7. Sounds like a smaller capacitor has blown, that sweet smell and the grr sound is possibly the Cap discharging. But hey I am no expert so could be something entirely different. best of luck as I am another MF Fan having had my a3cr for a while now.
  8. I just use Audio GD for Both. Sound great, reliable and cheap.
  9. Hi All DIY buffs, Just finished re-clocking my 2 favourite players and the effort is by far worth it. I have re-clocked previously a Rotel rcd991ae, Sony cdp308esd, Marantz cd50 and a Cambridge audio 640v1 and had some great success with improving the sound. I think the best up until now was the Marantz CD50 as it improved the sound tremendously. Being a big fan of the Marantz cd5000, as I just really like the way the Philips tda1549 dac sounds, and after re-clocking it has improved 2 fold. These 2 Marantz and the Sony cdp308esd are all that are left of my collection after the big selloff, but I am more than happy to keep them as they just sound so damn good. I did some blind tests between a Marantz CD5000 and a Audio GD wolfson dac before reclocking and the Marantz came very close to the detail of the Dac, I think now it has been re-clocked it would sound better. So the to the point of this rambling Post, if you have a cd player you really love but it is sounding tired, go down the upgrade route with a new Clock, and some discrete op amps or tube output as this will bring a complete new life to it. The biggest improvement from upgrades is definitely the clock with deeper firmer bass, and veil lifting midrange. you will not be sorry regards Jonathan
