    When I lower the volume of the AH! Njoe Tjoeb 4000 CD Player all the way down, the music is still pretty loud. How can I make it so that the volume goes all the way down? Is there a mod where you can do this?

    Bruce, I know of no such mod. I don't use the volume control on the player since I am using a pre-amp. It has been said often on Audio Asylum that the volume control on cheaper players that offer it is not very good. As a result, audiophiles have said that players like the Ah! are not good choices for pairing with a power amp. Do a search on the Digital Drive on Audio Asylum for more information. I have limited experience with connecting players directly to power amps, so I can't really pass judgment.

    Keith, my cd player is connected to my Jolida integrated tube amp which powers my mains. The signal is much cleaner when I hook it directly to the the Jolida. I guess I have to live with it.

    I thought I saw a post on this forum not long ago where someone said he was able to lower the volume "range" of the Ah! 4000 via a soldering tweak on the internal board.

    Happy searching.
