Interesting to see that the same transport can have different readings in different systems.
My Micromega T-Drive is at 44.
Modwright-modded Sony 7700 is 0.
RAM-modded Toshiba is 0.
Tacam CD-RW2000 is 0
Empirical-modded Sony 7700 (the best-sounding of the bunch) varies between 0 and 15, but usually around 12.
I recently took the Lens out for a while, figuring that since the mods reduce jitter considerably and I'm using the excellent Concierto Violin and HT Cyberlight digital cables in and out of the Lens, that maybe the Lens was redundant and I could sell it and also save some money on the extra cable.
Well, I didn't notice anything dramatic at first, but after a few days of listening I found myself getting bored while listening. So I put the Lens back in and I'm tapping my toes again.
I have used a Rotel RCD 1070 with a Lens for nearly two years and and every time I power down and disconnect the Lens from the transport, I have gotten different numbers, ranging from 0 to 26. I have no idea why it should vary. When I auditioned a Levinson 37 it registered 0. I have also tried an old Philips CDR 880 and it also registered 0.
