My problem is that I donīt know in what direction to go from here.
The cd player for me has more limitations the tweaking and DIY can overcome. Whatever you do you canīt get more out of a cd with 16 bit analysis and 20KHz bandwidth.

Peter,

Good job on the dac. Once you are finished with your cd-pro 2, are you still going to use the dac, or use the cd-pro 2 with the AD1865N chips?

promitheus,
For me the sky is the limit.

Brian,
The whole intention behind the CD Pro transport is to use it as a main source. From what I've heard so far, eliminating SPDIF connection should be the major step forward, so I will either use I2S with AD1865 with no oversampling or something along 1704 DACs from BurrBrown, whatever sounds best.

So far, I consider it the only way to go. SACD doesn't have enough title selection (my main interest in music is industrial stuff) and oversampling along Elgar DSC (or whatever it's called) is too expensive. I must also admit that my current digital setup sounds really good.

Peter,

That was my initial assumption that it would be a replacement. It will be nice to see if you can get better sound from the cdpro transport. I hope all goes well with your project.

Yes, check the page 4 of the thread What does the average DIYer listen to these days?

Although I tried everything else, that's the music that makes me going.

Peter,

Wow, that's some kind of music!

I think I know the answers to the following questions (knowing what you've built) but I just have to ask ......

1. When you listen to music, do you listen from the beginning of the song to the end or do you scan thru the CD and listen to bits and pieces?
2. Do you listen them loud or just as background music?
3. Do you listen (if loud) with the kids and wife at home? I assumed you've got wife and kids.
4. Which is most important to you? Low, mid or high?
5. Is achieving 16Hz bass important to you?
6. It feels loud just by reading it! How's your hearing?

Please don't take any of my questions as being offensive ......

promitheus and all,

suppose it would not hurt if you start to write a technical specification. What do you expect from your TT? place for one tonearm or two or more ? weight? size?
What sort of motor appeals to you, AC or DC, asynchronous or synchronous? belt drive or friction wheel drive or direct drive? how many speeds, 33, 45, 78 ?
speed regulation or is ist sufficent for the start to adjust it manually?
Appearance? Shall the platter be shiny, translucent or can it be a grey slab?
Subschassis/leightweight style or heavy weight?

What sonics? What music do you listen to? Is PRaT important?

As i proposed, we can have discussion here and after we have settled on preferences (fighting over a spec can be fun ), design choices narrow automatically.

For the record, i have a ready TT in mind. But i'm not going to tell you about it. Too easy. Who ever participates in a diyAudio TT project shall have the feeling he has contributed and it is his design as well. I will ask questions and i will supply info and maybe organize obtaining parts.

I'm willing to give my contribution with the drawings in autocad (3d if needed) for all the parts of the turntable (except the arm, leave it to the pro's).

I don't know if it helps, but my intentions are good!!
