Does anyone mod cd94 for money??
« on: June 05, 2012, 09:53:36 AM »
I'm ready to mod my Micro Seiki CDM2 (CD94) to use as transport and was thinking about paying someone to do it. Does anyone here do this, or does anyone know of anyone that can do this.

Also, I'm using a Wadia DAC, so would modding to something along the lines of Wadia 3200 be the right way to go about this? Cheers. :)

No-one? OK no problem. I can get a good start on my own, I'm just a bit concerned about how to go about removing the analogue section, but I'll do a bit of sniffing around the net etc., and keep having a good read through the forum here, and ask around a bit. Cheers.

i CAN MODD IT NO PROBLEM DO YOU REQUIRE I2S?
How deep are your pockets or how long is a piece of string really hard to modd and tune without being close to the dac in question or the system a guide of modds is easy but the magic is in the fine tuning with your ears

Oh for sure I understand the system tuning part of modding. I just would like someone to remove the analogue stage. This would be a good start don't you think? I can do NOS mod, IEC plug etc. myself I would be happy to live with the transport like that while looking into clocks, 12s etc...

As far as 12s, probably to many questions for me to ask via keyboard about that (and piss everyone off :-[), so maybe not for starters. I can possibly give Stevevalve a call about things like 12s to save all the typing.

I have an old(ish) Wadia x64.4 digimaster DAC, and something along the lines of a Wadia 3200 specs would be a good start i think. As you can tell, I'm a noob :-[

Braddo,   Danny Digital is the man in Sydney to do CD94 mod's.

He did the full works on mine.   PM me if you'd like his contact details.
It's all about the music,, not the equipment.

WRT Wadia DAC, I'm not sure it can be run in NOS. Some Wadias had a proprietary digital  filter and FWIW I believe it was pretty good.

WRT Wadia and I2S - not sure, would have to check it out. I2S is the way to go if you can. I'll have a dig around tomorrow

WRT transport mods, doing mods without going I2S and a decent clock is kind of like polishing a turd - to coin a phrase.

cheers

Thanks for that info. Much Appreciated.

I'll let you guys know where I stand. I'm NOT here to bludge info and look after myself, that's why I asked if anyone can help me for payment, or if there is someone who does this type of work commercially. I don't want to be a pain in the arse with a million questions on this forum which is what will happen if I mod something myself :-[ I don't want to get in the way I should be able to pick things up on my own along the way as I read/research etc.

Thanks again everyone already a big help. :)
