Re: Audiophile modifications for DSP Ultralights?

Hi Mark:

Thanks for the tip! As it turns out, I had a FiiO E5 languishing in my gear box, banished there because it didn't quite raise the volume of a very low-powered MP3 player up to acceptable levels. However, with the already generous volume level from the PL-606, it does just fine, even with the Grado headphones. It's charging now, but initial tests with the bass boost feature show that it does indeed add a subtle yet valuable oomph.

I would still like to see a mod for the PL-606's audio section, but this will certainly be a great improvement :-)

Thanks - Kevin S

To improve bass, I'd also recommend the FiiO E5 headphone amplifier.
It's a very small, very simple little amp that charges off a USB
connector. It has a volume control and a switchable bass boost. I have
found that the boost effect is subtle yet effective. I bought mine
through an Amazon reseller.

I also concur with your ranking of the relatively audio quality of the
PL-606 and G8/PL-300WT. The PL-380 seems to be a bit lacking at times
in that department -- not obnoxiously so, but the '606 and G8 seem to
sound better, to me at least.

Hi Keith:

Thanks. Actually, that's exactly what can be blamed for this latest interest :-)

A little bit ago I upgraded to a pair of Sennheiser PX-100's for commuting and general DXing, and found a pair of hardly-used pair of approaching-audiophile Grado SR-60's in a thrift store for three bucks(!). After realizing how good the radios could sound with proper headphones, I am hoping to squeeze even more out of them. Even feeding the audio through a good equalizer with the low end cranked up, followed by a good headphone amp, the low end is still fairly pedestrian. Call me fickle...

I believe I have a pair of the Koss KSC-75 over-the-ear phones which are notoriously heavy on the bass - I may try to locate them and see how they do.

Thanks - Kevin

Hi Kevin, 
Just a thought: before modifying any radios, you might want to merely try some different brands of headphones. I have a stock Sony lightweight headset (not buds) that was supplied with one of my Sony pocket radios--don't remember which one. I now use it with many different radios, and it improves sound quality, bass response in particular. 
I haven't tried the Skullcandy brand yet, but I notice they're becoming quite popular. I will probably get a pair soon.

Hi all:



I was wondering if anyone has looked at the feasibility of modifying the Tecsun Ultralights for purposes of FM audio quality? As a daily commuter, I for one would like to see their superior FM sensitivity and selectivity matched up with good audio reproduction :-)



I have all of the Tecsuns, and to my not-so-sophisticated ears the Tecsun PL-606 is the best of the bunch in stock form in terms of volume, treble/high end, sound stage and stereo separation. The PL-300WT (Eton G8) is not far behind but somewhat muddled and closed-in, while the PL-310, PL-360 and PL-380 are even more limited. I would put the non-Ultralight PL-390 after the PL-300WT but ahead of the PL-310/360/380.



Regardless of the pecking order, what they all lack is a good bass/low end, presumably due to small electrolytic caps in the audio section and perhaps elsewhere. Xin over in China is somewhat famous for modifying Ultralights in order to correct this, for example the SRF-49/59:

http://www.fixup.net/tips/srf49/srf49.htm

He has also done the Sony M37V and S83/84. In all cases, replacing some (mostly electrolytic) caps with larger values really makes a huge difference.



If anyone with the technical know-how has ideas about what caps to replace with what values in a Tecsun DSP Ultralight, especially the PL-606, I'm all ears! (I would also be interested in talking to someone who could actually do such mods).

Hello,

I own (2) kchibo kk-d202 radio's, and they contain the silabs chip.

They are very good radio's on fm (with extra wire as antenna extension), and here is the same radio, from Hyundai:

Some UL Tropo FM DX

John Cereghin <jcereghin@...>
 

Some good FM tropo up and down the coast this morning so I pulled out
the PL310 and bagged the following:

0715 91.7 WBKU Ashokie NC, 238 miles, AFR, ID as “WBKU Ashokie, Rocky Mount”

0730 89.7 WCPE Raleigh NC, 280 miles, Classical, “WCPE, The Classical
Station”, “Rise and Shine” program. New. This is a special station
to me as I listened to it every day when I lived in the Raleigh-Durham
area back in 1993-1994, so this was one of my "most wanted".

0845 104.3 WAXQ New York NY, 132 miles, Q104.3 liner

Welcome, this is a good source of information on ULR. Like yourself, I had many of the ULR laying around the shack. But never realized DUH the potential of enjoying them for DX. Now my wife thinks I have lost my mind, setting around after dark with ear buds and writing on a note pad, well it beats watching the idiot tube anyway!

Enjoy,

Hello Steve:

 Welcome to the ULR DX Group!!! Nice to have another member with the Disease!!!

Although the Group has only formally been in Existence about 3 and a Half  Years .....a good deal of the members on the list have been DXers for many Decades!! If you check out the Archives you will find a lot of Useful Info pertaining to the Group and DXing with Ultralights. You can also look back at old messages and follow the progression of the list.

If you like Little DX Magnets........this is the place to be!!

Welcome aboard..........

Hi all:

I went on a computer speaker hunt, trying to find a decent-sounding, low-noise set-up. I purchased the Logitech S120 2.0 for about $22, which sounds great, but the wall wart (and internal electronics?) RF noise/buzzing made it profoundly unusable for AM listening. So, unless you only listen to FM, I would steer clear of that unit. My daughter was glad to take it off my hands for her laptop, though :-)

I finally found a set-up in a thrift store that runs on 12 VDC, which I feed with a small power supply, and it works great. It's a Cambridge PCWorks unit:

Keith, you might try out the smallest conventional, analog (not USB) powered computer speakers from Logitech; under $12 in Walmart here on the ConUS. They're dark gray-black, have an AC cord that leads directly into the left speaker (no wall-wart) and have no hum when output from netbooks, ULRs and my ATS-909. They feel solid, sound very good to me and are inexpensive and uncomplicated.

Listening to Logitech S-120's. (P/N 880-000065) right now, quieter than anything I've ever used. No wallwart, 100mA draw, too. Good luck.
