This player (in Australia at least) was Marantz trying to jump on the bitstream wagon and came out before the CD42/52 models. It was probably a Philips pcb and maybe the dac chip before SAA7350 - either SAA7321 or SAA7323.

In your country ........ who knows.

I had found something. 1st it’s ugly and 2nd not so bad with electronics. DAC is tda1545. I don’t think that CD player like this one is playing music at all. All I want to say is that CD41 is a very old model. I don’t know what to do? Maybe I will search for Marantz CD4000 or CD46.

Thanks for helping me

I have a CD41. Its unfortunately in pieces at the moment. Its not too bad. I also have a Philips CD624, which is identical - except it has an SPDIF output.
CDM4 based, which is quite nice - liked by many, and plenty about secondhand if one should fail. Not too bad. Pretty good to mod (if you like Bitstream). However, I found the plastic cage chassis a pain to put back together (that's sort of why its in pieces - I couldn't put it back together again ). I use the CD624 occasionally as an I2S source (from the decoder chip) for an old NOS DAC I have.

Its an SAA7310 decoder, and SAA7325 (integrated digital filter and DAC).

Its probably alright if you sniff off the i2S and fit a multibit DAC in there. There is plenty of space to do that if I recall, in fact a whole compartment. You could easily shove in a TDA1543 DAC in the space, probably something a bit bigger with some planning.

Hope that helps,

Phil

What do you want to do with it?
Isn't the CD46 about the same age/ I'm not sure about the CD4000.

If it was me, I'd get a CD63 (again! LOL). They're much easier to get the main board out of, and great for modding. And there is a mine of information on *that* thread.

However, the CD41 is a reasonable place to start.
It might not be the player you eventually settle for (you may well move on to something else), but you'll learn a lot modding it - in preparation for your final player.
