Since my original mention of this dissapeared, along with the transporter mod thread about 10 minutes ago, I thought it worth posting this on the DIY forum.
I recently removed the 12MHz crystal from my SB3, the intent behind this is to ensure that there is no interaction between the two asynchronously running clocks which share the same HCU04 package.
I believe this improves the sound of the SB3 noticeably. The difference, to my ears, is inreased resolution and better flow and timing of the music.
This mod should be applicable to all the SB products (I only wish I had thought to do it to my SB+ when I had it), but it does mean that any source with 48Khz or 96KHz sampling frequency will not work anymore.
Anyone else tried this?
I would be interested to read your comments about the change (or lack of) to the sound quality.
