Removing that internal cover may also lead to those components failing sooner. Since the CDM has been discontinued for some time, just keep in mind that if anything fails on the board, you might not be able to get it fixed. Generally if something has been soldered on, it isn't meant to be removed.
I would also not recommend anyone to do the same. For one reason or another, this thing is there. Any changes in the responsibility of the person doing this.

But still. I'm not sure, but it seems to me that the CDM Limited Edition, which has a perforated shell without a window, does not have this cover. Obviously, it has a slightly different thermoregulation. And yet, it is the same device. And it works good without a cover.

It looks like that. Need to cut out one of the pin from the tube and solder top pin to psb instead.
ok, based on the picture, (square hole on PCB) connects to the pin 9 (top pin), pin 1 of tube is cut, the rest follows in order pin 2 goes to hole 2 (next to the square hole) and so on and so forth until pin 8. can you confirm?

you like the sound?

Yes, you are correct. I can describe the sound - the tubes are good for relaxed sessions, highs a little bit recessed. Any way all details are there, you can enjoy music without any harsh and sibilants by hours. But not my choice, solded.

Hi everyone!

"I throw a bottle into the sea" :smile: Can we still find these "famous" Mullards for the CDM ?!

Cheers.

tons of them on eBay and others sites.
Great ! Thanks, I'll look at that :thumbsup:
are you referring to the 6112 or 6021 aka CV3986? the latter is available in ebay as hohes mentioned.
To begin with, the 6112 ! or ... I haven't tried them on the CDM yet...
