I still haven't had a DC-2 yet. Don't like the sound of this distortion you talk about, let us know how the mod turns out!

I bought a mint one this week. What a gorgeous sound. It's so lush and smooth it's amazing. You don't realise how great it sounds until you actually hear it in front of you. Mode 1 is my favourite. In stereo it's fantastic. Maybe using compression or Limiting can keep the distortion down? I didn't notice any on mine.

The modification is on my to-do-list for the next weeks. I will report if it works as described.

It's four years later and I've put that on my to-do list. I hope that I can tell you soon if this procedure really improves the performance of the DC-2.

Update:

I just tried this modification today. I cannot recommend it at all. It's awful and I reversed it again. The DC-2 did indeed have more headroom and less distortion with hotter signals, but every tiny bit of sound was now accompanied by clearly audible high noise.

So I have to live with the slight distortion here and there, especially with my neck pickup. One day I will try it against the DC-2W and check if the new model has less distortion.
