I think there would have been more takers but for high res streaming which was gaining popularity at this time.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way

Read it again Stu; just for interest/ debate what do You think the eventual donor Cdp would have been- several years on and the suggestion of a car cdp can work as most have remotes- I also like the idea of a PS3 etc-
What mods would u do to a transport- most are flimsy plastic drawers except the meridian I had.
Would make for an interesting project 🍺
Analogue- ARB modified Funk Firm Vector; Ortofon Mc 10 & MCa step up to Yaqin phono stage

I have no idea what the donor would have been :cry: Something from the cheaper end of the market maybe fro Richer Sounds ? Knowing RD it would have been a simple, musical affair. Play stations are apparently good players of cd's - need to give my son's PS4 a run out :grin:

RD wanted to strengthen the transport, not sure how but i would wager it would involve bison kit and steel :lol: I don't know about drawers - i love the way my Naim does it with it's swing out tray that you pull and magnet to hold the cd in place. No cogs, belts or other crap to go wrong.. It is very substantial.

I gave gone to town on mine with the power supplies, regulators, clock, removed the seven pole bessel filter anologue stage. Simple is better in my experience although my project bred power supplies like rabbits.

Richard ended up looking at the Pro-ject CD Box S which is a slot-loader with a high quality transport, remote and external PSU.

But he was hesitant due to the higher price.

I tried out one of these and ended up with the Cambridge CXC which totally fulfills my CD needs. :grin:
