Coulomb,

Since you are building the player from scratch it would be good idea to place the DAC inside player (since it's so small), bypass Crystal receiver and use I2S interface directly. The DAC will cost you less than $50 in parts, especially when you can buy those TDA1543 chips for less than a buck.

Anyway, I,ve heard good comments about Scott Nixon DAC. Fred Dieckman built it too and was very satisfied.
Thanks for the response Peter, I was thinking of just buying the board and adding my own parts. I am still trying to find out from Scott if it is compatible with I2s.

Which out put from the CDPRO2 drive do you prefer to use Peter?


I hear Mace is using the CDPR02 1254 in thier high end boxes.

Anthony

That's probably the best transport around if not counting some exotic offerings from Japan.

So far I'm only using spdif connection and didn't try anything else, but consensus is that I2S is much better.

You should try putting all those AD1865-K chips that you have to use with the cdpro-2

I just ordered 32 TDA1543 to play with. But I'll try AD chips too.

There is a WIKI page for it now, so if you are interested put your name on a list.

There is a Wiki page for that now http://www.diyaudio.com/wiki/index.p...hilips+CD-PRO2

Default 12S

Hi,

I contacted scott nixon and he said the connection should be posiible (12S), would you need a clock circuit though to do this?


Thanks
Raj

Hi,

I was wondering.
I saw this project on a website and seems to work.
http://netcity6.web.hinet.net/UserDa...RA/iNFRA-1.htm

He is using an CD-Rom player from Creative labs.
There is already digital output, just connect it to an DAC and you're ready (I think).
I was aiming on an A-open drive since it has just the button I need.
http://www.aopen.com/products/cdrom/cd956e.htm
It states (just as the CD-Pro2) that it has an Audio Quantization of 16 bits..

Am I wrong?
Thank you,
Remco Blankesteijn.

If you are wondering if it's going to work as a CD player; it will. But it won't necessarily possess sonic refinements of CD-PRO.

I don't think you need a clock circuit to make it work, although adding a clock would probably improve performance.
