From the hard ware is different between these two Onkyo NDS 1 vs NDS 1000

 

NDS !000 has better Jitter Clock and Sound Quality is also better than NDS 1

 

NDS 1000 : better soundsatge and better depth than NDS 1

 

NDS 1000 : better tonal balance , high more extended and more open

                  better Bass more clean and detail Bass comnpare to NDS 1

 

NDS 1000 has better Build Quality with Stainless Steel Body vs NDS 1 from Plastic

 

NDS 1000 weigh 1,1 Kg , NDS 1 weigh only 0,m4 Kg

Today i have back my PSU DIY with Torodial transformer ex my Defected Monitor Audio.

 

The Result is very good , my impression as follow :

 

High : more prominent and free and more detail

 

Mid : more body and full sound, more clear and detail 

        Piano sound very detail and i can hear the echo from every tone

 

Bass : more  impact and very deep and clean and detail Bass 

 

Soundstage : wider and has better depth now 

 

Separation : much better amd i can hear the instrument placement more acurate.

                  The Background is now very Black

 

Conculsion ; Onkyo NDS 1000 with external DIY PSU improve the Sound Quality very good.

                   No wonder many Company from U K sell many type of external PSU for NDS 1. some

                   sell the PSU more expensive than the Onkyo NDS 1.

 

Recomandation : it is worth it to upgrade the PSU for Onkyo NDS 1000

                         can improve SQ about 30 %
