Hi everybody! I’ve always been curious about the DCC format, and recently acquired a Phillips 900.
DCC playback sounds fantastic on the unit! However, ACC playback volume is very low and hissy, even on dolby b tapes with nr engaged.
I’m aware they are not recommended to play ACC. However, I’m wondering if this is a symptom of being in need of a recap somewhere? And not being comfortable on that level of electronic repair, how difficult/expensive would that repair be in the US?
Hi, Pretty sure that most will agree that a 900 will need the read/write board and the AD/DA board re-capping. I have a first generation Marantz DD-82 that I recapped the read/write board on some 10 years ago when I was a mere 40 something & before my eyesight took a dive Now I am fast approaching 54 and my machine though running well needs the AD/DA board recapping before something tragic happens. Im pretty sure @drdcc will be able to help you with a recap within the US. Hope this helps.
