Iba po ang PS2. PS1 lang po specifically SCPH-100X.

Btw, na try ko na rin iyung SCPH-550X at kinumpara ko sa SCPH-100X, iba ang tunog.

@AAUDIO
I have recently traded my scph 9 series with a 1001 seriers; did the bias and gain mod as per internet tutorial, ok ang SQ and any quality na cd basa na!
since yung power supply malapit sa eye i put somewhat shielding aluminum and drilled holes atop the small transformer pra madecipate agd ang heat...habang tagal gamit mas maganda tunog.
i wanted to upgrade it more so i was wondering where to purchase mundorf supreme cap? sir ? any pix how to replace parang dun sa bias n gain adjustment tuturial sa net na naka link sa topic na to?
can u pls post the mod u did sir with step by step direction?
TIA

hello sirs,

here is the link for the PSI output stage mod....http://www.dogbreath.de/PS1/output/output.html
the mundorf supreme cap is quite big to fit inside the PS1...im still looking for a replacement capacitor that will fit inside the player...

Due to the limited space, I believe your best bet is a monolithic capacitor. It is much better than the original electrolytic. Then parallel a small polypropelene capacitor (MKP series).

Sa Playstation ko naka surface mount ceramic capacitors ako. Parehas din ito sa monolithic capacitors (iyung monolithic kasi basically ceramic din siya). Hindi kasi available mga surface mount ceramic capacitors sa Maynila. Meron lang monolithic dun sa Quiapo - Amco Marketing sa G. Puyat. Bale 1uF pinakamalaki nila. Bale 2 na 1uF na naka parallel ang kailangan mo.

Good day mga Sirs,

Pasensya na po, lurker lang ako dito sa PDVD but this topic got me really curious. May mga tanong lang po sana ako regarding PS.

1. Is the playstation's wonderful found due to it's DAC? The AKM 4309BM chip?

2. Can the lens/eye be replaced by those of CD-Rom drives', I mean, just the lens, not the whole assembly?

3. Can a 100v stock PSU be modded to accommodate 220v?

Reason of these questions is that I gambled in buying an SCPH-7000 and upon opening it, saw the AKM 4309BM DAC chip on it. The unit is "Made in Japan" and is running on 100v. Defective daw sabi nung binilhan kong pawnshop. I live far from Manila and therefore parts would be difficult to find and am considering salvaging lens from a CD-Rom drive. Are there any way that I can revive this PS, or is it worth reviving, anyway?

Thanks for your replies po mga Sirs. . .

i suggest you better look for model scph 1000 or 1001 since balak mo na rin lang gastusan...this is the exact model that is recommended for cd audio use.

just want to ask, if the 3.3uF 50volts electrolytic type that's being used in the 1st page (specifically the bigger cap) is still available? how much per piece?

thanks. :)
