Give me a shout with an email address if you want the circuit diagrams, and let me know how it goes! :)

No, they are there to mute internal digital noise between tracks, or at switch on / off which doesn't seem to be an issue with the CD67.

How to remove depends on the model really.

It's all reversible, but you aren't going to want to if you do the right mods. :wink:

Heres a pic of that interconnect that ' in my opinion' would convince you that some cables really make quite a defference.

It's DCT frozen with a few litz copper wires as the hot wire, and the return is woven into the braid !........i hope the cable designer worked out how the they don't touch as the hot wires inside the braid look bare to me...

Litz wires have individually insulated strands. That's the whole point of Litz: to counteract skin effect.

They shouldnt 'sound different'!

FFS! Unless they are physically doing something to a signal by either bad design or implementation, a good cable shouldnt do anything. It should simply connect one component to another and not be 'heard'.

Its simple bloody physics!
