Premium Modification Descriptions
-Power Supply upgrades/rebuild
Replace all connectors and blocks with point-to-point silver wire for High Voltage input to
supply. Replace all critical diode bridges with Ultra Fast Diode Rectifiers for removal of glare
and grain. Replace all key capacitors in circuit with and abundance of Rubycon Ultra Low
Impedance capacitors for substantial improvement in power supply filtering.
DEXA Clock Reference Clock Upgrade-
The OEM Cary master clock is a basic pierce oscillator which feeds directly into the ASIC
(DSP) chip . Phase noise and power supply injected noise here is high affecting all audio
formats with "jitter". The DEXA clock has an extremely low phase noise oscillator (around 1.5
picoseconds Jitter RMS) and dramatically improves all areas of playback. The ultra-low jitter
and noise performance of the D-Clock immediately releases impressive sound quality & shifts
the players tonality to remove hardness & harshness; the overall frequency range is more
natural and unforced. Lower frequencies on playback have greater impact, weight and
control. Greater dimension is added to music and movies, vocals and instruments having
improved spatial qualities with a more solid, palpable feel. The DEXA clock has a very unique
function of isolating the clock signal ground to the power supply ground, so there is no
ground loop, and also there is no Mains Noise injection for the cleanest clock signal possible.
The DEXA D-Clock now eliminates the need for a dedicated (and costly) external
dedicated power supply due to its inherent mains/ground isolation topologies.
Highly Recommended by all means for the best audio performance!
Internal Soundcoat Damping-
Apply Soundcoat damping material to specific areas to minimalize the amount of internal
vibrations and ringing.
Analog Output Stage Rebuild w/signal coupling transformers & Part Replacements
This is the most critical of all the modifications that are performed in this machine. The stock
solid state output stage is chalk full of signal capacitors, resistors, transistors, etc.. We
completely disconnect this output stage and rebuild it with a optimal sounding output stage
consisting of very high quality audio signal coupling transformers. This is the largest
improvement that can be done in the entire unit. The very high quality transformers provide
galvanic isolation in the signal path (which blocks HF noise being generated by other
component down the signal chain) and gives a means of providing a ultra simple,
no-capacitor-in-the-signal-path type output that is sure to stun and please you to say the
least. In this mod as well, we replace an abundance of voltage rail capacitors for the DAC chip
area to the ultra fast Rubycon capacitors, and all wiring is Silver Wire. Add set of very high
quality Vampire RCA jacks to rear and wire in with silver wire. Now Music is so much quieter,
cleaner, clearer, more vivid,more resolute with no lack of dynamics! Much more music,
emotion, and drive over stock.
