Audio1st. Looks great, but what does it sound like. I remember you made one mounted in a (Bamboo ?) chopping board ?. I have some off cuts of granite lying around. What's the difference sound wise between Wood (Bamboo) and Granite ?

The Flatfish is using a toggle switch called TOC/Stop that is the "Door Closed" switch. Flip it to read the CD TOC (Table of Content) then flip the play switch:

Quote:
There are four tiny toggle switches: for power, selecting tracks, pause and play, and one marked Stop/TOC. You have to flick the Stop/TOC switch or the Flatfish won’t read the entire CD if the previous CD you played had fewer tracks. For instance, if the previous CD had ten tracks, that is all the Flatfish will recognize on a subsequent disc until you click the switch to identify the contents of the new disc. However, if you Stop/TOC a disc with, say, 20 tracks, you should be covered for most CDs that follow

The switches I have in my partsbox stay open or they stay closed, and can not be used as a substitute for pushbuttons. But I like the look of the flatfish switches, how do I specify this functionality ?
What I want is a " off - (on) " configuration , correct ?


The closest I get is (on)-off-(on) (on rsonline), but there is a difference between DPDT and DPST contact configuration , anyone care to clarify on this?

I guess that properly wired I can get a (on )-off -(on) to select tracks back and forth , and maybe play / pause ... ha.. am I answering my own question ?

From MPJA @ $0.29 ea.

Whadaya think?

...100?...200?...
I'm using essentially this very switch, and it works fine.. I tried some of the other larger types and while they look nice, the feel is not so good.

Thanks audio1st

Did you consider adding Daruma roller blocks underneath.
