Please tell me, does the thumb-wheel to dispense deodorant act as the volume knob???
It look like this Acme place has VAM 1202 transports for about $20. It must be a trusted place if The Road Runner gets all his anvils and dynamite there. http://www.acme-sales.net/acmecart/h...in/portal.html (Click on the left bar "Optical Pickups > Philips")
It looks like the wiring of the flexfoil cable is different see below: Pg. 21 (of the PDF) manual, VAM1250 : http://www.daisy-laser.com/products/...5021quad01.pdf pg. 25 of the 1202 manual: http://www.daisy-laser.com/products/...2V1.1daisy.pdf
Yes, I'd also like to know if the VAM1250 can be used, it seems more reliable and also offers CDRW playback (not available on the stock Eastsound). Looking at the pictures of them, it seems they have the same shape and dimensions: VAM1202: VAM1250: However, the VAM1250 has that flex ribbon coming out the bottom. I've not looked at these two in person, so I am curious if the electical connectors are pin-compatible.
My fav. is the Pentel Quicker Clicker (old version without the flex grip), but the Zebra is a close second. I favour 2B lead by the way, it seems to write darker, has smoother feel, and actually erases more completely (especially with the eraser mentioned above).
I tried a Dynahi as a preamp for a while and it was spectacular. All the qualities of that amp were shining through, it was like having a 'amplified straight wire' connection.
Yes, though the balanced outputs use the venerable 5534 opamps, it could be improved and made a discrete topology. Maybe the ZAP filter could be implemented, I think that was potentially balanced out configuration as well.
RAM say they Quote: eliminate 90% of the stock output stage for the best sound possible Ok, so do they leave the 'good' 10% unmodded? How do they measure 90%, parts count? Weight percent? Their Superclock3 is the cure-all for every player. Looks to be about $40 of parts, unless someone can identify the oscillator on that board (which could be the one $50 part at most?). I'm not saying it's impossible for this clock to be better than the...
The invert button is to correct for absolute phase. A description about phase inverting is found here: http://www6.head-fi.org/forums/showthread.php?t=89043 a list of labels that typically have inverted phase is found here: http://home.comcast.net/~theaudioana...e_Polarity.htm
