Hmmmm. It's a different transport!

This is the one in the CD723.

The yellow line points to one of the screws that fixes it to the chassis. There is another one on the opposite side.

There must be something similar holding your transport in position!

Default RE: "no disc"

Hi Weng,
THe 721 is using CDM12.1 laser assembly and the 723 sports the VAM1202 laser.I hear the 1202 laser module can also be used for cdm12.1.It's most likely that the laser has died.Try replacing it.

Weng, did you see the picture yet? There was a problem with my ISP and the picture didn't appear for a few hours.

thanks for the info.

nuuk,

Hi All,

I am going to ask a basic newbies question !!

I am new to the world of DAC's. I have a CD723 which I want to use as a transport for my DAC. The DAC i have is the OPUS from Twisted Pear Audio. What I'm struggling with for a while now is to find a way to interface the two

As far as i understand one option is to feed the DAC directly with I2S signal from the CD723, but I suspect that will not be easy?

Another option would be to feed the DAC with SPDIF signal (Twisted Pear Audio also do a SPDIF to I2S receiver) but is the digital output on the CD723 an SPDIF interface? (sorry i am a newbie - i don't understand whether the term "digital output" and "SPDIF" is the same)

So i guess my question in a few words is ... how exactly can i use the cd723 as a transport with my OPUS DAC?

It seems that a lot people know how to do this trivial thing but I am struggling to find any explicit guidance ( i guess I could ask Twisted Pear Audio too!

Thanks

The digital output on the CD723 is SPDIF.

The digital output on the CD723 is non-bit perfect SPDIF , which makes it a bad choice for a transport.

This is true, unless you "hack" the player.
Using the hacker you can select oversampling rate and data format (EJAI or IIS) and eventually fit a TDA1541A inside as I did

Cheers
