Hi,

I bought 2nd hand Tiptop audio ONE, which arrived one component unleashed, the black (capacitor ?) behind the module, with two legs, silver-colored top. Anyone knows which component it is, and where to exactly solder it back ?

Thanks, I can send pics if needed smile !!

Yeah pictures might be a good idea. Is it the one that's in the lower left in this circuit board shot from Schneiders?

Anyone having Audio ONE to check which leg to solder where ? There are three options when compared to the original, images here:



Cap or similar below:

Possible solder points:





I wrote to Tiptop Audio, but no reply yet.

Thanks !!

Positive to the outer pin of the power regulator or whatever it is, negative to the center pin



Interestingly, the solder joint on mine has come away![/img]

Looks like some last minute power filtering.
synthetek
looks like those caps were an afterthought, probably soldered by hand after the modules were manufactured.

Thanks all, got reply from Tiptop, yes, the cap is for reducing noise, not "superimportant", comes to U9 left and center pin as in Basicbasic's photo.

Thanks all, works fine without the cap, just tested, might even be a bit louder sound (I had one before, memory-based non-scientific comparison smile), maybe solder it back at some point, let's see !
