Hello,


I can not find the JVC RCEZ31

Is there an alternate ? Another Brand ?
Several JVC players look similar.

Regards
Francesco.

JVC has discontinued RC-EZ31 probably. JVC RC-EZ51 would be OK ..

Default Guide to identifying a donor

Here's my two yens worth of advice on how ID the sanyo laser unit discussed in this thread.
You can't usually do it online, you have to go into a shop where they have boomboxes out on display... with a small torch (flashlight).
Look for the CD mounting pedestal with a screwdriver hole for unscrewing the motor from the chassis, many units have this same spindle pedestal so don't take this point too seriously.

Shine the torch through the laser slot and first make sure there is a circuit board about 1 inch 25mm under the laser sled. Then look for the group of three small electrolytics and the three empty holes marked DOUT (digital out),
+5V, and GND, you can also see the connector for the door switch next to these three holes.

I could get away with this in Japan... being 6'4" and an ugly brute, the store assistants didnt give me any grief. They probably thought I was mad... they're probably right!

You might get a different reaction in your area!

This is just a guide, this is what I did and found a Sanyo boombox in Japan which was a suitable donor.
I can't take responsibility if you find a boombox that looks like this and isn't the right one. Just trying to help.

Good luck.
Bill

Hi Billo4,

Regards
Francesco.

Default Sanyo Donor

I posted pictures last month over on the longer original thread.
I don't want to pollute or dilute this thread.

Finally, an affordable CD Transport: the Shigaclone story

As far as I know this unit is not available outside of Japan and my local store tried to re-order but haven't been re-supplied yet.

Bill

Hallo again,
my shigaclone is already working. Not finished yet, but able to play CDs. However I have small problem: constant voltage 0.53V on DOUT output. I`d appreciate any suggestions how to deal with it.
I did mod by Peter showed at the begining of this thread

It's not a problem, it's normal. Usually there is a coupling cap in a DAC (0.01uF or similar) and you don't have to do anything. If DAC does not lock to your transport, install such coupling cap at the output.
