I did experiment without magnetic puck, all you need to do is put a piece of paper to secure CD:

In my setup the difference wasn't that big: without puck the sound is more organic and analog like, with the puck the soundstage seems to be better.

The magnetic puck is certainly more convenient and I'm not sure I would be willing to gave it away.

However, the biggest advantage of screw in clamp is that with warped discs it makes them more flat and servo doesn't work that hard. One of my discs (K2 HD Sound) the warping is so bad that the vertical movement at the end is 2mm or so, With screw in clamp (on Flatfish) it was pretty much straight.

Just finished installing the display (stressful). I would recommend you build the enclosure big enough to fit the original board in.

Not up to Peters standard, mostly Panasonic FC's used throughout. Haven't changed the oscillator yet, can't seem to find the right frequency in UK. Used a Vishay 1830 for the 10nF. Digital out resistors are old, no idea of make, non magnetic 110r and 110r. Used a white LED with 4.7k for display, connected before voltage regulator. Switches are (ON) OFF (ON) type for Play-Stop and Next-Prev. The top is part of a circular, bamboo chopping board. Base was a photo frame.
I must say it sounds really good to me in my humble system.
Thanks again to Peter for all his testing and info
