47 Labs 0647 "Treasure" CD player diy kit

Fancy building your own CD player with built in non-oversampling DA converter from a kit?

Look no further.

Based on a TEAC transport and ye olde Philips TDA1543 for the nonoversampling DAC

DAC is basically the Progression DAC (see DAC of ther Klones) reborn.

or salient details:

-top loading, close to the lit to automatically load the TOC.
- isolated digital and analog power supplies
- ATMEL AVR microcontroller, custom program/operating system
- simple, easy to understand display and controls
- standalone or use as a transport with external DAC
- small footprint, B5 size(W250 H65 D175mm)
- comes with a remote!

Although offered as a kit or pre-built, my suspicion is that all the real work has already been done: programming the microcontroller, now that's an area where most DIYers still fear to tread!

Not too many kit/home build CD players out there. The Softone M3 is the only alternative that immediately springs to mind.

    You can email "kit@47labs.co.jp" in with your request (Mr. Tsukahara is fluent in English) but I don't think he is quite ready to ship internationally just yet. It will happen though, all the Treasure models are offered in 100-120 and 200-240 V versions and he's preparing English manuals for all the products.

    Just to update anyone interested in the Treasure kits, I had no problem at all ordering an 0447 passive pre from Japan to the USA. Shipping was quick and the price was low. A friend didn't like how the gear looked on Internet web pages, but changed his mind after seeing (and hearing) mine.
