@ uelover  Would you happen to have a close-up pic of the clock so I can get an idea how it's installed ?

 

Thanks

+ 1 on the close up picture.  I am interested on the Regulators.

 

Please...

Thanks T&C! I bet those improve the sound a bit.

Are those similar to what Eulover?

Care to share the part number?

Be well,

Yes they do. Bass is snappier.

 

I'm not sure what regulators Eulover is using.

 

The one on the left is SPJ79(-15V/2A) the one on the right is SPJ17(+15V/2A) . I just read on Belleson's website that they developed a new low voltage regulator specifically for the ESS9018 chip. Sounds interesting.

Hahah since when did I become an 'EU Lover'. Lol.

 

I will try to open up the case and take one close up shot tomorrow night.

Looks really interesting - I've heard a lot about the cascade current source improvements.  If anyone can piece together how this is installated, I'd love to hear!

I haven't done that mod yet. Still waiting for the kits to arrive. All I know for now is that they replace the two 15k tube output resistors. A fellow DIYer will coach me on the details of the installation when the time comes.

Here is a pictures of mine.  I hope this helps.

Looks like we just need to need to replace the resistors with the 2 modules, which means it may be a tough fit for me unless I can find a place somewhere else for my Russian grenades in the dac. Lol.
