I made the mods on the first photo Removed output caps, added the two blue jumpers, and made the 5 cuts marked with the xs and that was all I did. I know, I lost my headphone output after that but, I purchased a used Parasound p5 preamp and thought I would try the optical option input but I'm getting no audio now. Can anyone please, tell me if any of the cuts I made during the modding would cause the loss of optical output as well, as the headphone out put? I'm trying to determine if the modding caused no optical output or, if the preamp is at fault I only have 14 days to return the preamp if it's at fault. I'd sure appreciate the help if possible I only did the mods shown in the 1st photo, out of the 4 shown! Hope this link works!

The cd player was purchased used also, and I've not been able to try the optical output till I got this preamp which was after the modding!
