This is modified Sony PS-1 "Playstation" CD Player, SCHP-1001.
Sony did a great job putting in excellent DAC in its early Playstation models. Modifications to this player yield excellent sonic results. Model SCPH-1001 uses excellent Asahi Kasei AK4309AVM DAC which gives this player a superb audio quality with lots of detail, dynamics and resolution.
I did the basic set of modifications on this player that significantly improve its sonic performance.
1. Modified output stage - "dogbreath" mod - DAC direct output using WIMA capacitors and metal film resistors.
2. Laser transport disassembled, cleaned, lubricated and damped to reduce parasitic resonances. Laser adjusted: bias, gain, laser intensity set to specs - CDR's play with no problems.
3. Power supply recapped and adjusted.
4. Added some weight and damping to the chassis.
This listing includes Arsenal Gaming PS2 universal remote control.
This player will definitely surprise you with its sonic performance, unheard of at this price point.
