out of interest, what do they charge for freight.

8 pounds for 2 packs of 4.

After exchange rate,  it cost me A$58 landed for 2 packs.   

I intend to buy 2 more packs,  I've got a pack of type B's underneath 1 sub atm (I need another pack for the other sub).  I wanted to try it on 1 first and also give the sub some time with those type B's underneath them - to make sure they dont go flat like pancakes after a week.

So far, they're working nicely.

Ozmillsy,
Are you going to do the zero oversampling mod? I have found some instructions, looks relatively easy to do.
Mt CD960 turned up at work this arvo. Looks in really good condition. Will try and get it running before HHH
tonight.

If you have spares,   I owe Steven 3 of them.    ;)

Any idea where I can buy them from?   ???

Yep.  I was going to wait and do that when I get my Killerdac assembled.

I also want to change the clock.

Ordered a tricord 4 clock for mine tonight. Price is a bit more reasonable with the brilliant exchange rate at the moment.
Decided to send my player to Danny (when clock gets here) for a balls and all job ready for KD + full service

I agree, Danny's attention to details is magnificent, I'm very happy with his work, highly recommended.

And tonight,  the famous power supply mod,  bypassing the fuse and other stuff, replacing the 2 pin plug with a 3 pin furutech (chinese clone).   The power button wont work after this mod,  I'll control switching the player off/on at the power source.

If you've never taken a drill and hacksaw to a great condition vintage player before, then you havent lived.   ;D

Here are the pics, taken in the dark and didnt focus that well......

Cleared the way, and put some protective bits of wood in before drilling.


After drilling, hacking and alot of filing,  this is my new hole in the case for the plug.


Re-assemble what I can, and the internal view of the new plug.


Rear view with the plug inserted.


I havent soldered up the cables to the plug yet,  ran out of time tonight before the footy started.   Hope to get to that on the weekend.



I pulled apart my CD85 and removed the PCB so I can send it to Danny (still to be arranged) and safely remove the S1 chip.

I also wanted to install an IEC socket but the CD85 has less room to work with and that poxy fuse holder looks quite involved to remove. 

I'd like to remove the entire rear panel and cut the hole for the IEC but that fuse holder looks tricky.  I was even thinking about removing the fuse holder entirely from the rear panel and securing it inside the unit to give more room to install the IEC.

Early days yet, I'll have to start a mod thread for the CD85.

Yes please, it would be good to see under the hood photos of the CD85.

I'd like to have the whole analog section removed from mine, so it's simply a transport.  Might have to give Danny a ring about it.

Danny is doing the biz on mine to make it a transport only. I was too scared that I would
stuff it up. My thoughts are it is probably best left to an expert who knows all the pitfalls.

I have a non-functioning Philips CD960 and I was wondering if parts are available and, if so, who I might approach re repairing the player.
