It's a modification from Holland brand, like van Medevoort, makes it sounds more a life and lets the bass runs deeper?

And in the original version?

The CD17 is easily better than the 542 - mods or no mods.

A good mod to do on the CD17 is to bypass the infamous "HDAM" output stages.

A few other mods (replace caps etc.) turns an already fine player into a superb player.
