Sony SACD players- SCD-1, SCD-777ES, DVP-9000ES,
SCD-C333ES: Vacuum State GmbH Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 mods
$1495. CLICK HERE for details.
Other CD players- The Vacuum State Remote Clock Module
(with ultra low noise regulator and separate AC power
supply and Tent low jitter clock oscillator) can greatly
enhance the sound quality of nearly any digital player,
including the new "universal" players that
reproduce CD, SACD and DVD-Audio CD's. $400.
Rebuild of vintage tube power amps to Vacuum State GmbH
PP1CS specifications $750. This applies to power amps
like Dynaco Stereo 70, Eico HF-87, HF-89, Heathkit, or
virtually any push-pull tube power amp. Converting the
output stage as well as the drivers from simple push-pull
to full dual differential, this mod provides a level of
inner detail and microdynamics normally associated only
with single-ended triode amps, but also provides the
wider dynamics and better controlled bass of the
push-pull configuration. It is very hard to beat the
sound quality of these amps below the $15,000 price
point. They represent an outstanding value, for the
"Vintage" tube preamplifiers, receivers, and
integrated amps from Dynaco, Fisher, Scott and others
also can be rebuilt to a higher specification, not only
using better parts, but with new circuit topology
developed by Allen Wright of Vacuum State GmbH. Addition
of Allen's standard circuit modules can vastly improve
the sound of these units, usually for less than $400.
Telephone us for a quote on your specific unit.
So, if you have an older tube or solid state unit that
you like, but want to improve its "musicality,"
in cooperation with Allen Wright of Vacuum State GmbH, we
may be able to offer a cost-effective solution. It will
cost you nothing to inquire.
Clients are invited to telephone us concerning repairs
and mods, 7 days a week at 1-800-634-0094 USA and Canada,
