Usenet News posting on by Ric Moser:

Just installed the AC-3 modification from Precision Laserdisc on my Pioneer CLD-D503, ran Video Essentials and cannot believe the difference. The Do-It-Yourself kit was a snap to install with only nominal soldering skills required Actual time to install was only about 15 minutes and the results are great. For $75 I ended up with an AC-3 machine to supplement my new DVL-700. Check out the Precision modification. They're easy to talk to and seem to be able to work modifications on almost any machine. For an extra $100, they'll do the install.

They just modified my Pioneer CLD-501 for me and did an EXCELLENT job. I am using it with a Yamaha DSP-3090. I highly recommend them; their price is very competitive for the quality.

Email from Terry Wheelock:

Way to go! Got the player back, and I love it. I know very little about the AC-3 process. I assume all outputs to exhibit the same sound when played through the same decoder. However, I had been using a Friends Pioneer 406. The sound is much clearer and more defined on the player you did for me. I played the opening scene of HEAT. There is a scene with a line of cars having their rear windows blown out. On my friends 406 player, the left rear surround has the glass shattering, and a small explosion. When I ran my 503 after you fixed it, the rear surround has the glass shatter, but it was much sharper, and the explosion had more of a prescence. Maybe I'm nuts, but I much happeir with my 503 that you did, than with his 406 that pioneer did. THANKS-And feel free to use my e-mail as a refrence for future customers.
