Any opinions on the modifications to the cD23 on Ebay by Audiocom which are supposed to improve the "lean upper bass" ? Any views on this supposed problem - is it as pronounced as in the CD72?
I have these and some further modifications being done at the moment by Audiocom. I'd be happy to relay my experience for others considering sending in their unit.
I decided to go ahead with this as I'm not going to sell the unit and I think it could perform better. Audiocom seem to have a superb reputation concerning complex modification and in particular their upgrade parts.
My main concern is the new stresses the modifications place on the system, also the failure of the transport system. The unit gets warm as it is in stock form.
As to the opamp replacement, perhaps the discrete opamps from Burson are the best choice ?
The burson op-amps are supposedly superb. I considered using them in a recent mod job but thought they were a tad pricey. Settled for BB op2604's instead
I found the following on a certain auction place:
I hope I'm not breaking any rules by including the link.
Does anyone have any experience with this modification? I love my CD23T's sound. But if it can get even better...
I have had a look at their website and can not find modifications of ARCAM on it. This auction description is quite detailed, is there someone from Arcam who would care to comment? are the new components not in the CD23 because of price considerations, or are they newer?
