erik use cat 5 instead of the white/black wire supplied by trichord you can also change the caps on the clock board.
try 12v battery instead of the trichord power supply  ;)

all the caps you can use any cap you like values dont matter that much its the flavour of the cap that matters build a clock like i have you will forget about trichord.
12v battery is the main ingredient of the clock power supply,completely isolated from the mains
caps to try duellund,dubilier,jensen pio,ampohm (1uf to 10 uf) or higher caps will change sound it depends on system tuning what is required by user to get what they are after.

Thanks again....
I do not work with batteries but I will certainly "flavour" the clock in due time...I have a long way to go to "finish" this baby first.
Today it is feedingtime....dedicated 5V for the transport chips .... ;D

Erik,

Again, very impressed with your work.

WRT clocks and supplies, you can get as good PS performance -not- using batteries but it just
takes quite a bit more work.

WRT to 'flavouring' clock, this is an area of interest I will be doing work on.

cheers
