  • TDW-1 "Mix In" - distorted?

    I've been noticing that the feed from my CD player (via a preamp buss) is pretty distorted, particularly in the low end and at low to med gain, when listening with phones plugged into the TDW-1 module. The kit portion of the mix sounds fine, and the phones sound great straight from the CD player, so it's not the phones. The preamp is somewhat high-end (Arcam) and otherwise absolutely clean and noiseless.

    Is this a common "mix in" trait or, after only 1 year of use, is it time to get it looked at?

      Check to see if you CD player has one of those 'bass boost' type things. If it does, turn it off.

      , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...

        Get a y-connector cable and just hook the cd player directly into the TD-10. If the buzzing is gone then it may just be the pre-amp.
