Right I am fairly new to the SBT and have gone through the first phase of looking at what can be done to change it in search of an improvement. I have and still feel that at this stage and while the unit has a warrantee I will not consider any physical change to the unit such as new clock etc . I will now list the things I think make a difference to me in my system that keep me happy . I make no claim that they are universal and I have not proof other than my own opinion .
1 ) Use the digital output of the SBT to an outboard Dac . In my system the analogue out is grey and pretty ordinary with no real depth and no imaging that I could discern . Digital out is something else again the sound stage opens out and becomes a real acoustic voices become natural and bass suddenly is not only their but intergrates with the rest of the music and drives it on . Turning the analogue output off and digital output only makes a small but worth while difference (this can be done through either Toolbox 3.0 or the Triode Enhanced Digital output App)
2) Set the unit to fixed 100 audio output . This is simple to do through the settings under Audio Settings and makes a very big difference have the SBT on full output and use your pre amp to change volume it makes things much more dynamic better bass and just more music .
There are lots of other tweeks and changes you can make which all have very small changes but only you can decide in your system if they make things better . In my system I found them just to be different so I just ignore them .
I would ceertainly like to try an outboard power supply and the one that is designed by JS seems sensible . However there is no way I am going to buy one for more than the cost of the SBT itself in the hope it will make a small improvement. For that money it will have to make a really big improvement and so far no one seems to be saying this is the case .
