How did you manage to drill a hole through granite. Drill press? Impact?

Thanks again for share your work

Hi JC,
I was surprised too, I just used a standard masonry drill, low speed, no impact and water to cool the tip. The granite is only 10mm thick..

I am also interested and can pick up the 51 instead of the 31 tomorrow.
I think it is more than confirmed that those 2 are identical for our purpose...

Is it possible to get me on the list for such a beautiful acrylic mastercrafted puck....the asking price makes it a
no-brainer...my compliments...(I will pay all the costs in advance)

I have a Wadia 22 transport at the moment...and I am willing to go extreme all the way to get the JVC to surpass it...even if it takes me months....cause that is also part of the hobby...

Hello Peter,

Yesterday it took me again 3 hours to read "only" another 18 pages of this terrific topic...

Just out of curiosity in the transport shoot-out in favour of the jvc what amplification and speakers did you use.....

Or maybe there is a link in this forum
"to get to know you better"

Lots of Respect
Erik

So, I did finally get an answer from work about doing a run of cd mounts and the answer was no. Apparently I have designed too many new parts that need the lathe to manufacture, so the lathe schedule is full. Therefore no time for side jobs when the machines are needed to make our own products. Sorry guys.

But thank you for trying!

Thanks Peter...I reckon that will pretty much do a referential comparing...

Today I picked up my boombox JVS RC-EZ51H.... YYYEEESSSS

At the moment I am still doing all the reading/studying the topic..I want to make sure before I start I have nothing missed....I also printed all this topic pics and pdfs made a booklet out of it...

I am a bit worried about the dig out pin on the chip...you are most certainly a sharpshooter....

Also the TOC switch seems a bit inconvienant...correct me if I am wrong...but if I let the transport read a disc with 30 tracks only once and leave the switch and everything on...I am homefree...

for TOC switch (door switch) you have two choice.

First : short cable and don't use ! When you need to change CD just put your cd transport OFF and it's work well

OR

Second : replace door switch by beautiful on/off button

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

for DIGITAL OUTPUT

you have place on PCB of CD mecanics where is wrote "Dout"
it's the best place to install your Digital output cable.

I don't use digital out direct on IC leg ? because it's the same

Thanks !

Implementing a TOC switch is not a big deal, I have it unpretentiously mounted between top acrylic cover and metal frame on a right hand side and use it often.

Having the transport read a disc with 30 tracks will work too, but I like to know how many tracks I need to deal with when new disc is loaded

While retriving dig out directly from a pin on the chip worked well, I didn't notice much improvement (if any) when comparing to DOUT place on a PCB.

BTW, getting rid if RCA socket on digital cable brought some improvement.

As you can notice, Shigaclone permanently replaced CEC TL0 and I don't feel any temptation to go back (while still can).

Wonderful Zen-Like result

Did you use the downloaded service manual of the RC-EZ31 or do you have a link to the manual of the 51 (I did an extensive search myself but not finding anything).

The more I read...the more I want to go ahead...

I do not know you guys but the translated polish site is VERY hard to make any sense to me........

.........anyway it has great pics...so I copied those...
