Today my MX-U8 has been ordered thru my kindest middleman ever, hpgsemaj.
He has helped me a lot communicating with Melodious and has arranged that i receive MX-U8 with better Noratel transformer (230V only)
and Crystals placed on sockets (pins) for making changing to NDK's a lot easier.
Again, hpgsemaj, lots and lots of thanks, you are the best!
In the meantime I ordered the needed NDK Crystals, MUR120 rectifiers, several RIFA MKP 0,01uF/0,1uF bypass caps and Panasonic FC's (4700uF and 2700uF)
Can't wait to receive MX-U8 and starting all the mods
Hope it will at least sound as good as my U12, if it is I'm a happy man
Finally, if XM-U8 is indeed at least equal to SQ U12, i will sell heavily modded U12 to anyone who's interested (yes, including the NDK's)
Happy modding for everyone
