Well, I've modded C-2s and they aren't as easy to mod as a C-1.
Thanks for the reply, and nice to see your in good enough shape to post after your mods :)

Have you done any documenting of your C-2 mods, or put together any parts lists like there are for the C-1? I have the C-1 stuff bookmarked, for inspirational value if nothing else, but if there's C-2 stuff I'd love to see it. It's like ...Carverporn. Wait, uhh, nvrmnd :rolleyes:

Well, I did all my usual stuff. I replaced the moving magnet phono op-amp with an OPA2134, but replaced the line op-amp with an OPA2228 (quieter in every respect). I replaced ALL the electrolytic caps and the polarized ones that were in the signal path with non-polar Muse Nichicons. I didn't touch the tone section because of what I posted earlier. If you PM me your email address, I'll send you a spreadsheet of the parts I ordered.
It should sound like it isn't there!
