Upgrading Quad 99 CDP-1 to Quad 99 CDP-2

Very good review of Quad 99 CDP-2. This unit has a bit of additional resolution compared to the original version 99 CDP-1 and I would like to know the process to follow to upgrade 99 CDP-1 to 99 CDP-2.

I have done some comparisons between two models and depending on price the upgrade might be worthwhile.

Aparently the only difference between them is on the transport side, but seeing both units from inside, flat cables are not completely compatible.

Is there anybody out there who has gone through the upgrade process?

Cheers,

Jim, There is no way to upgrade the original to the CDP.2. Entirely new transport and software.

Sorry, Walter

I had asked Walter about your issues. Now, what you might do is get in touch with Chris Johnson of the Partsconnexion in Canada and see what he might recommend for parts upgrade. Chris can do clock upgrades as well as analog output upgrades. It would never hurt to ask.
