I have sourced a power transformer that will fit inside the modified Cambridge, but only one with single 120V primary. I will have to special order a toroidal transformer with dual 120/240V windings that will fit, in order to be able to offer the mod at 240V.

Thanks,

Dan

The benefit to having two DACs is that they can be configured in mono, one DAC per channel. There are numerous advantages to this, not the least of being improved channel separation.

Thanks,

On the modded unit, is the volume control in the analog or digital domain?  If it’s digital, how significantly does the sound/resolution get degraded?  Thanks!

VC is in the digital domain and I don't hear any degradation at all!

Huh, cool o.k.   All that dropping bits stuff must have been older lower resolution systems.

Apologies if I posted this before and forgot that I did. Cambridge Audio has an official refurb shop where they list items on ebay:

and they even have some CXN V2s up right now for $749 w/free shipping.... wow they've sold 231 off the current batch.  :o

Any thoughts about this universal player/streamer, apparently now available in the US?

Sorry, just saw this. I am not at all familiar with this mfr. I tend to like to modify products from companies that I know and know I can source parts from and have good support.

Having said that, it does look like a solid Universal!
