Philips CD104 digital output...

Postby Axel » Sun Nov 21, 2010 9:33 am

I'd like to add one to mine so as to be able to use it with the DAS-R1 and spare my CDP-R1's laser...

Has anybody done that modification to the CD104 or any of the contemporary Philips players ?

thanks

Hi Axel,

i have the same problem ;). Bought an CDP-R1 & DAS-R1 combo and already have a cd104. I want to spare the laser in my CDP-R1. Probabbly you want to do the same. Did you find a solution for a digital out. Otherwise i will have to find a cd304mk2

regards

As I was told by several people, the 104 can't be modded because of the dual-1540 d/a chips and oversampling arrangement...

So is that of the Revox B225 which is basically a CD104. Revox made a proto with the output "for the fun of it" but didn't pursue the idea because it was very complex, didn't sound good in the end because the 104/225 weren't made to have it in the first place.

The answer to this, at least mine, was to find a CD-94 or 95 (95 for me) to benefit from the everlast CDM1 and the conversion qualities of the dual-1541A S1 (which do sound "better" than a 104 to say the very very least) in a fairly elegant package (albeit not an R1 - you know what I am talking about :).

The answer to the question if R1s and CD-95s aren't available is to go for later Philips-based players with regular TDA1541(A) and not the original 1540...
